Kevin Ley's Furniture Projects: Practical Designs for Modern Living
G.ild of M.ster Cr.ftsman | 2001 | ISBN: 1861081855 | 128 pages | PDF | 13 MB

These fine projects have been featured individually in Furniture and Cabinetmaking magazine–and here they are together, in one handsome, informative collection bound to whet any cabinetmaker's appetite to start work. Over 200 photographs and 80 diagrams, drawn from a wide range of design styles, will quickly have you making these eminently useful and attractive pieces: an elm and burr elm coffer chest; two chests of drawers (one in the Arts and Crafts manner, the other Shaker); an oak display dresser; a simple nest of tables; a corner cupboard; and executives' desks. Ley dispenses wisdom on how to accommodate movement in wood; on choosing, conditioning, and using native woods; and on creating the ideal furniture-making workshop. Even beginners can do these!
