Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The often-intimidating art of chairmaking is explained in this book of expert patterns and tips for creating seven elegant chairs. Through each project, craftspeople learn increasingly complex skills that build upon each other, making the manual a complete education in all of the basic chairmaking techniques. The straightforward plans and methods make the designs--such as a child's ladderback chair and even armchairs--accessible for home woodworkers. Illuminating discussions of construction and design fundamentals, along with an appendix on oils and waxes to give projects the finishing touch, round out this exploration of the art of building comfortable chairs.

Book News Annotation:

Using a hands-on tutorial approach, furniture maker Miller teaches woodworkers the skills they need to design and build chairs that are comfortable, durable, and beautiful. Step-by-step instructions are given for seven chair projects of increasing complexity, ranging from a simple dowel chair to an armchair with extended front legs and a padded seat. Photographs (b&w and color) and drawings of chairs in various stages of construction accompany the text. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
