About this book
Great Designs from Fine Woodworking Find inspiration for your next project in the pages of Furniture, a comprehensive survey of the best designs that have appeared in the pages of Fine Woodworking. In the course of putting this book together, the editors of Fine Woodworking looked at numerous pieces that have appeared in the magazine, then culled and compiled their favorites. The pieces vary in style from gothic to contemporary and everything in between. Some are large, some small. Some were built in a day and others took months, but each was designed and built by woodworkers--evidence of careful eyes and hands are all over this book. The makers range from revered designers to humble builders working quietly in the corners of their garages and basements. But each piece, in its own way, succeeds. The furniture found here is presented with full exploded drawings, which you can use to build or amend to your own tastes. For designers and decorators, this book will be a welcome resource when working with clients. For others, it will be like walking through a gallery. No matter which direction your tastes lean, whether you're a designer, maker, decorator or simply someone who appreciates handcrafted work, you'll find the same inspiration in this book that the authors have found in putting it together.
