The Woodworker's Guide to
Furniture Design

by  Garth Graves

Design is one of those matters that sets the merely good from the truly great, yet it is an aspect of woodworking in which relatively few have had any formal instruction. This book is destined to change all that by showing the techniques for getting your ideas out of your head and into working drawings.  In addition to helping you develop your own style, the author includes a chapter analysing classic styles from history such as Shaker, Queen Anne and Arts & Crafts.  Standard dimensions for typical furniture are also covered in the extensive coverage of supplementary information.
