The third volume in Graham Blackburn's Illustrated Workshop series, Traditional Woodworking Techniques is at once a clear and practical introduction into 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 through the selection of materials, the complexities of dimensions and wood movement, the choice of joinery, and the mysteries of pleasing design. Starting with just a few basic handtools, a beginner will progress from simple but useful projects, such as boxes and chests, to more advanced items, such as tables and chairs - furniture to be rightly proud of. Whether you work your way through every project, or simply dip inot 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.
