“Making Furniture Masterpieces” aims to give you the secret recipes to 30 of the most admired pieces of period furniture. The specific projects include a Chippendale highboy, Queen Anne hall table, Pennsylvania Dutch painted chest, a Sheraton desk and a William & Mary dressing mirror.

As the author explains, he himself wanted to have furniture that was in very limited supply and was very expensive. His solution? To make accurate replicas himself. And now you can too.

The book provides a nice balance of overall skill development - dovetailing, carving, finishing, upholstering and metal work are all described and related to the furniture - and step-by-step instructions for each particular piece. Photographs, drawings and detailed sketches also enhance the instruction and project descriptions.

A fine resource for constructing, appreciating and evaluating some of the most iconic pieces of period furniture.
