Chairmaking can be very fulfilling - but also very intimidating. That's why it's good news that Jeff Miller's acclaimed Chairmaking & Design was just revised and reissued. The first edition of the book won the Stanley "Golden Hammer" Award for best how-to book, and it earned its place on many woodworkers' bookshelves because it makes chairmaking seem possible - and fun. Miller, whose own work is in museum collections, is a straightforward and thorough teacher who is determined to demystify chairmaking enough so you'll try it. The book provides expert patterns and tips for creating seven different types of chairs: a dowel chair, a right angle chair; a child's ladderback chair; a slat-back chair; a neoclassical chair; a caf?© chair; and a captain's chair. Each project teaches increasingly complex skills that build on each other, making intimidating skills accessible and manageable. The book also includes a chapter on adapting a regular chair into an armchair, and considerable information about developing new chair designs. Chairmaking & Design is filled with helpful line drawings and photographs that illustrate Miller's technique, and some inspirational photographs of some spectacular chairs. Paperback. 199 pages, 8" x 10". 26 color photos. 111 B & W photos, 164 line drawings. "There is nothing better on the market." - Fine Woodworking
