Build the Classic Furniture of Your Dreams

If you're a woodworker, it's a good bet that you have admired certain examples of classic furniture. What furniture maker hasn't entertained the thought of building a tall clock, a chest-on-chest, or a secretary? Who hasn't stood in front of a highboy or a blockfront chest and thought, I wish I could build that

Well now you can In this book and DVD, you'll find five exquisite examples of classic American furniture that you'll be able to call your own. These beautiful pieces incorporate time-honored joinery, graceful proportions, and eye-catching details. And there's no need to feel daunted by the challenge of making them. Hundreds of photographs take you through the building steps, while carefully rendered drawings and cutlists take the mystery and math out of the work. The accompanying DVD - a treasure trove in itself - includes full-size plans and in-depth instruction on shaping cabriole legs, mitering sticking, and other techniques you'll be able to add to your arsenal of skills.
