Publisher Comments:

Return to the Simple Life with Country Furniture In woodworking and furniture making - as in many aspects of life - simple is best. That's why so many people like country furniture. The best country furniture is attractive and down-to-earth; it's clean, durable, and timeless. Ultimately, country furniture both stands out and blends in — and it's furniture we enjoy having around. If you want to bring the simple beauty and warmth of country furniture into your home, look no farther than Country Pine Furniture Projects and your own two hands. With basic woodworking skills, a modest amount of space, and some lumberyard pine, you can build 32 classic pieces of country furniture that will last a lifetime. Every furniture project in Country Pine Furniture Projects is based on an original design that was built by a country woodworker 100 or more years ago. And, to guarantee success while you develop your woodworking skills, author Bill Hylton presents each project in detail — with lots of drawings, part listings, and dimensions — and provides complete step-by-step construction directions.

Synopsis:

Affordable, attractive, and timeless furniture for the home is made possible with this project guide that includes 32 easy-to-build classic country pieces, from small candle boxes and footstools, to a large Amish wardrobe and corner cupboard. With basic woodworking skills, a modest workshop, and a trip to the local lumberyard, builders are ready to use the detailed plans, exploded diagrams, and complete cut and dimension lists to reproduce beautiful designs that have endured for hundreds of years and are still wildly popular. Invaluable instructional features are also presented to drill down common woodworking techniques, such as routing dovetails or cutting a mortise and tenon joint, and simplify them in a sequence of photographed steps. Bill Hylton is the author of Router Magic and Woodworking with the Router, and is a frequent contributor to woodworking magazines, including Woodworker's Journal. He lives in Quarryville, Pennsylvania.
