Chairmaking can be intimidating but it doesn't have to be when you've got this easy-to-understand, well-illustrated book in your shop. Author Kerry Pierce draws upon many years of professional chairmaking experience and includes jigs and fixtures that have never appeared in print. Learn how to weave Shaker-tape seats and splint and rush seats, bend and shape wooden seats, and much more. Pierce's clear step-by-step instruction shows you how to master every angle so that you'll be able to turn plain cuts of wood into beautiful splint-back bar stools, a New Lebanon transitional rocker, the perennially popular Windsor chair, and 21 other styles, many of which have never been published. Book contains full-color photos, black/white illustrations, glossary, and index.
