Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you have read my other reviews on woodworking you know I am practical as well as into the spirit of wood. Marc Adams of Marc Adams Woodworking School "The Largest in the US" held a seminar here in Minnesota for the MN woodworkers Guild. I found Marc to be and excellent teacher and he shared some of his sources. This is one of them! It helped me to get hold of the process as well as the steps in designing furniture. I found I have made similar mistakes, but I won't be making the same ones the author has made.

For me I want more than skill training, it is important to know why I should do this. An "ah ha!" experience is the reality of fine woodworking takes a lot of time. Wood prices keep rising, and I know I am always going to make a mistake.

This is truely a "practical guide" and the author shares his frustrations and the why and how to get through them.

This book is on the top of my reading pile!

This is one of the best books on furniture, as it gives you the dimensions for each piece of furniture that are industry standard.

Don't let the cover fool you. This book is the best on the topic for learning the basics of furniture design.
