Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This adaptation of a Swedish title provides hobbyists and craftspersons with photos and measured drawings of over 35 small trays, stools, mirrors, large cabinets, chairs, and tables from various Swedish museums. A brief introduction covers wood, joints, hand tools, and finishes for the beginner. Although light on construction details, the book's plans and photos are adequate for experienced woodworkers. The design of the items is closer to early American than modern Scandinavian, and extensive collections of wood project books and woodworking magazines will not discover much new here. However, smaller collections building in this area may find the title useful.

The talent behind this book -- Hans Keijer is a specialist in traditional environments, Lars Sjoberg is curator at Sweden's National Museum, and Ron Willick is a skilled cabinet maker -- is a winning team. There are 35 woodworking projects of varying difficulty presented with step-by-step instructions and measured drawings, in addition to a photo, usually in place in a museum room setting. Even for those who do not plan to use it as a workbook, it is a good guide for Swedish vernacular furnishings.

The book gives clear blueprints for a range of items of traditional Swedish furniture, together with useful pointers about the level of difficulty in making each item. I have only made one piece so far, and I found the sketches and measurements in the book to be more than adequate.

Purchased as gift and it was well received, but no projects attempted yet. It has older photos with simple plans.
