Story

An exploration of furniture forms that have persisted outside of the high styles that dominate every museum exhibit, scholarly text and woodworking magazine of the last 200 years. This book explores 11 of these forms – a bed, dining tables, chairs, chests, desks, shelving – and offers deep exploration into the two construction techniques, “staked” and “boarded”, to make pieces that have been forgotten, neglected or rejected. However, this really isn’t a book of plans, but rather shows you the overarching patterns behind these 11 pieces. It gives you the road map for designing your own pieces.
