TRADITIONAL WOODWORKING TECHNIQUES
FUNDAMENTALS of FURNITUREMAKING


Graham Blackburn’s new book TRADITIONAL WOODWORKING TECHNIQUES is at once a clear and practical introduction to the art of furnituremaking, as well as a permanent and invaluable reference to many of the fundamental aspects of the craft.

Even if you have never made a single piece of
furniture before,TRADITIONAL WOODWORKING TECHNIQUES will guide you easily through material selection, the complexities of dimensions and wood movement, the choice of joinery, and the mysteries of pleasing design. Starting with just a few basic handtools, you will progress from simple but useful projects, such as boxes and chests, to more advanced items, such as tables and chairs — furniture to be proud of. Whether you work your way through every project, or simply dip into a particular area — such as the detailed chapters on miters, dovetails, mortise-and-tenons, splayed joinery, running carving, moulding, or drawermaking —
TRADITIONAL WOODWORKING TECHNIQUES will lay the foundation for a thorough understanding of this most rewarding craft.
Illustrated with over 400 detailed line drawings, and complete with an annotated select bibliography, this fully indexed book is an essential part of the furnituremaker’s toolkit.
