Fine Woodworking Design Book Eight is the latest volume in our popular series highlighting the most innovative pieces in contemporary furniture design -- all selected by a juried panel of woodworking experts. Where earlier editions in this series were simply a catalog of woodworking projects, Design Book Eight features fewer examples but offers detailed descriptions of each piece, profiles of the craftsmen who made them -- and lots of fascinating information about their creative process. Complete with current examples of high-quality custom and production furniture, this 176 page book showcases the finest tables, cabinets, chairs, bookcases, desks, chests and accessories being made today -- with 250 high-quality full color photos and 20 illustrations.
If you're passionate about elegant, well-designed, hand-crafted furniture, here's a beautiful, museum-quality book that will inform and inspire you. It has been more than a dozen years since Fine Woodworking magazine published Design Book Seven, the most recent in a series that periodically explored contemporary woodworking. There would be several changes between the old series and its offspring, what first became Fine Woodworking Furniture: 102 Contemporary Designs published last fall as a magazine, and now republished in book form as Design Book Eight.
For starters, Design Book Eight is limited to functional furniture, meaning that turnings, sculpture, musical instruments and the like would not be included. With those loose ground rules in place, we encouraged furnituremakers to send in their best work -- and send they did.
Readers with some of the early Design Books in their libraries may remember that each piece was accompanied by a simple caption listing the basics: name of the maker, name of the piece (if it had one), materials, dimensions.
If you are not completely satisfied you can cancel your subscription or return your book, magazine or DVD at any time for a complete refund. It was a compilation of the best and most imaginative work that came to the attention of editors at Fine Woodworking. So, late last year, Fine Woodworking Publisher Anatole Burkin decided the time was right for an updated version of the Design Book series.
In this invaluable collection of articles from the editors of "Fine Woodworking," readers will find foolproof finishes and application methods that guarantee the perfect finishing touch for any project. Jessica DiDonato from the Taunton books staff provided the considerable editorial assistance the project required. The first part of the book covers surface preparation, including sanding and scraping, a step that is critical to a successful finish.
