Even those with no woodworking experience at all can experience the satisfaction of making beautiful furniture—right away. The secret lies in modern-day power tools, which allow anyone to produce first-class results without years of practice. And this superbly illustrated and easy-to-follow guide shows novices the way to success. It contains all the information necessary to a fundamental understanding of the craft, including essential descriptions of wood’s characteristics, explanations of the basic principles of furniture construction, and guidance on all the necessary techniques. Buying lumber, planing, jointing, gluing, and using the tablesaw, bandsaw, routers, and drills: it’s all here. For every one of the projects—which include a chest of drawers, bookcase, and end table—each procedure is shown in fine detail.
