  • Carving 18th Century American Furniture Elements: 10 Step-By-Step Projects for F

    Carving 18th Century American Furniture Elements: 10 Step-By-Step Projects for F $24.95

    Subtitle: "10 Step-by-Step Projects for Furniture Makers". “Carving 18th Century American Furniture Elements” guides the reader through the process of carving authentic motifs found on the most treasured pieces of 18th century American furniture. Each of the 10 projects are presented in a step-by-step progression, from shaping the surface through layout, to rough carving and finally detailed carving. Each step is described in detail with emphasis on technique and methods used to accomplish the task. In addition, the text is supplemented with numerous annotated diagrams and photographs to assist the reader. The intent of the book is two fold. First is that the serious reader will be able to carve the elements from the text and photographs. These projects are not simplified versions that leave out the more complex details that make each element interesting and noteworthy. The entire process is covered and no steps are omitted. Second is to instill confidence in the reader that carving these elements is a learned skill and to provide guidance to that end. “Carving 18th Century American Furniture Elements” is intended for the serious student of American period furniture as well as those who are trying to improve their carving skills through practice and self study. It is written so that an experienced carver can learn new motifs and that a novice can gain confidence quickly. All of the projects are presented as part of a piece of furniture rather than stand-alone items that are for practice only. The projects selected for this book were chosen because of their importance and popularity in relation to museum quality 18th century American pieces.

    THE LATHE BOOK. REVISED AND UPDATED $24.95

    This is an updated version of Conover's original book by the same title. Conover discusses new machines and accessories and treats the lathe as an essential tool in the shop to be combined with other tools. This is a book on the lathe more than a "how to turn" book although Conover says that one of his objectives in the book is to teach the general woodworker to turn so that turning may be employed in furniture making. There is also a good deal of information for the pure turner. This new edition contains all new photography.
