about this item

Build furniture the way your ancestors did!

Do you enjoy the satisfaction of creating things entirely by hand? Immerse yourself in the world of traditional woodworking as period furniture expert Zachary Dillinger walks you through the hand-tool-only construction of six pieces of classic American furniture. From preparing stock by hand to period-correct joinery methods, you'll learn how our forefathers built furniture--and why they did things the way they did. Within these pages you'll find:
  • An overview of the historical development of major furniture styles from the 1960s through to the mid-19th century--and the European influences from which they evolved.
  • Instruction for period-correct woodworking techniques.
  • Six detailed furniture projects covering popular period styles.
  • Traditional approaches to finishing touches including insights into upholstering by renowned teacher Michael Mascelli and advice from Nancy Cogger of Londonderry Brasses for choosing period-accurate hardware.
With Saw, Plane & Chisel shows you how period furniture was made, explains how furniture styles developed and in turn helps you build excellent, realistic heirloom pieces.
