Editorial Reviews

"Conjuring up images of fresh-cut planks, sawdust, and varnish, author and fellow artisan David Savage takes us into the studio workshops of these craftsmen and craftswomen -- but in addition to their creative spaces, we are offered a glimpse into the minds and lives of the furniture makes as well. . . . Furniture With Soul's twenty profiles. . .will no doubt prove fascinating for woodworkers, yet those who know little about the field will also be intrigued and ultimately far better-informed. Savage's accompanying narrative is as smooth and compelling as his own furniture, and reflective of his many years of experience and passion for his soulful craft." -- ForeWord Reviews
