Book News Annotation:
Himself a custom furniture maker as well as writer and editor of literature about the craft, Gibson offers the latest edition of woodworking examples and inspiration that began in 1996. Previous editions were a bit scatter-shot, but this one focuses exclusively on furniture, and includes 250 color photographs and many drawings showing covert features and methods of construction. The chapters cover tables, beds, seating, desks, case goods, accessories, production furniture, and an exercise in which three designers tackle the same problem. There is no index or bibliography.
