Thanks for all the great comments! Congratulations to “sadkins” the winner of this book giveaway. Stay tuned for more exciting book giveaways and if you’re interested in theFurniture Fundamentals series it is currently available at ShopWoodworking.com.
When I joined the woodworking team a few of years ago I found myself thumbing through a couple of books in the Furniture Fundamentals series. Exploring those two books,“Chairs & Benches” and “Tables,” – as well as a book that I edited as an addition to the series, “Casework” – made for a great jumping off point for my work with Popular Woodworking. The series offers a lot of great information on how to build some of the most commonly built furniture forms. The books cover a range of techniques for varying skill levels and feature a wide array of furniture styles from Shaker to Arts & Crafts to Mid-Century Modern.
For example, “Tables” includes an Eames-style coffee table, a Victorian side table and an Asian bedside table – just to name a few. “Chairs & Benches” features a spindle chair, a Japanese garden bench and a few variations on the ever-popular Morris chair. The aptly named “Casework” covers all manner of casework from carcases to drawers. The three books are available individually or as a complete set. Together they make a nice reference for building some of the most popular furniture forms.
For this week’s book giveaway, we’re giving away a set of all 3 books in the Furniture Fundamentals Series! Simply post a comment and I’ll choose one winner at random. Winner to be announced Monday 9/18/17.
