Design & Construct Furniture That Works

“This is the Gray’s Anatomy of woodworking,” says Woodworking Magazine

You have the inspiration, desire, tools, materials, and woodworking know-how. But the tough part is figuring out how to construct the piece you want! Even if you have a picture of what you want to build, it isn’t likely to reveal how it’s put together.

So you start with a list of questions: What joints should you use? What’s the best way to attach the top? Hang the drawers? How long should the legs be? How do you deal with wood movement?

Enter “Illustrated Cabinetmaking”:

1,300+ highly-detailed illustrations

100+ classic furniture pieces

150+ joints & subassemblies

Exploded diagrams

Classic solutions to age-old problems

Sources of plans for the featured pieces
