While much is written about the tools, joints, and techniques that go into building furniture, too often the ¬style, proportion, and whys of construction strategies remain a mystery. As a result, many woodworkers- beginner and advanced, alike-are forced to build furniture designed by others. 'With Furniture Design and Construction', Graham Blackburn presents an insightful and beautifully illustrated reference that details how and why designs are created. Armed with the information in this book, you will be able to plan and build your own one-of-a-kind designs. By building or adapting the 12 projects found here, including a Standing Cabinet, a Traveling Testle Table, a Thinking Man's Chest, and Jewelry Box, you'll learn to put your own twist on any project you build-whether it's your own original design or simply your interpretation of a classic form.
