Fine Woodworking on Boxes, Carcases, and Drawers (Paperback)
about this item
Back by popular demand, these classic woodworking titles from Fine Woodworking magazine are filled with first-rate information that is as timeless now as it was when first published.
There's a secret to building boxes and drawers that can stand up to everyday use: it's making good, strong corner joints to hold the sides together. This is the art of carcase joinery. In this collection of 39 articles from Fine Woodworking magazine, authors who are also craftsmen tell you how to choose, make and use every kind of carcase joint, in both solid wood and plywood, using hand tools and machine methods, with particular emphasis on the classic dovetail.
Since it began publication in 1975, Fine Woodworking has written about practically every aspect of the craft. The "Fine Woodworking on..." series organizes many of the articles from the magazine's first ten years into individual volumes by subject. Each book in this series offers an in-depth look at a particular aspect of woodworking, from the perspective of skilled professional and dedicated amateur woodworkers.
