Book News Annotation:

The 36 articles have been selected from many issues of Fine Woodworking magazine and reprinted with all the lush color photographs and detailed drawings and diagrams. The first sections discuss general topics around the design process, making plans and models, style, and working with wood. The rest focus in turn on tables, casework and cabinets, chairs, and special purpose furniture such as beds and furniture to go under the flat-screen television on the wall. Specific topics include scaling furniture from photographs, elements of the Shaker style, designing along the grain, supporting drop leaves, the anatomy of a chest of drawers, and what makes a chair stand up to abuse.
