The Woodworkers Guide to Building Professional-Looking Cabinets and Shelves
Numbered step-by-step instructions, over 250 richly detailed illustrations, how-to photos & comprehensive materials lists. This is serious woodworking, adhering to traditional quality with well-put-together step-by-step instructions and amplified visually by "exploded" views.
This collection of 31 woodworking projects , aimed at amateurs who own their own workshops , may well signal the reemergence of real interest in woodworking after a decade of watching it performed on television by virtuosos. Eighteen American woodworkers have designed, built and furnished careful instructions for a variety of objects and furniture to occupy every room in the house, from a modest "recipe box" to a more elaborate and challenging kneehole desk and cherrywood buffet. Compiler Yoder warns us that this is serious woodworking, adhering to traditional quality; use of fiberboard and plastic parts is deemed unacceptable. Well-put-together step-by-step instructions, amplified visually by excellent cutaway sketches and "exploded" views, provide a sequential work order that is most useful, stressing economy by avoiding mistakes. And tips are dispensed for woodworkers not altogether comfortable with advanced techniques (e.g., cutting half-blind dovetails; planing; chip carving).
