While Furniture Design & Construction is a project book for woodworkers, it goes beyond traditional woodworking manuals to teach design concepts through carefully selected, hands-on pieces. This book is for the woodworker who is not content merely to build from preset plans; instead, it offers projects that will show how the designs originate and take shape, giving the maker the freedom to build anything, with or without plans. The book presents a dozen different pieces of furniture, each illustrated with detailed line drawings. Every project exemplifies a different lesson in design - making the book a self-teaching course in woodworking and furniture design for amateurs and experienced woodworkers alike.
