With this profusely illustrated guide, even beginning woodworkers can build precise reproductions of the most sought-after antique furniture — heirloom pieces by Sheraton, Hepplewhite, Duncan, Phyfe, Chippendale, and other celebrated craftsmen. It's possible by following the simple, step-by-step procedures outlined in this expert manual.
You'll learn how to construct such magnificent antiques as a Chippendale flat-topped partner's desk, Queen Anne handkerchief table, Sheraton drop-leaf dining table, Hepplewhite four-poster bed, grandfather clock, Queen Anne spice cabinet, and many more. Every step is clearly explained and illustrated, with remarkably detailed and precise construction drawings, accompanied by exact measurements. You'll even find superb photographs of the finished pieces.
The book begins with an expert introduction to the fundamentals of cabinetmaking and woodworking: how to cut, square, and plane lumber; the use and care of hand tools; and then clear explanations of such processes as joinery, drawer construction, dovetailing, wood turning, gluing, bull and claw foot carving, and other wood carving details as well as how to choose the correct stock. Also included is a wealth of time-tested advice on selecting hardware, finishing, and other aspects of the craft.
No matter what your level of woodworking expertise — novice to expert — the exceptionally precise and well-thought-out instructions and diagrams in this book will enable you to craft beautiful and authentic antique furniture you'll be proud to use and display for years to come.
