Detailed Description

Modern Cabinet Work : A Comprehensive Treatise on Making Fine Furniture from the Golden Age of Craftsmanship. Author, Persy A. Well and John Hooper.

Also called "the Cabinetmaker's Bible," Modern Cabinet Work was originally published in 1908. It is a tremendous insight into the mind of the 19th and early 20th centuries' designer and wood craftsman. Fully illustrated with technical drawings, photographs and measured details, it includes chapters on hand tools, machines, design, joinery, historical styles, hardware, tables, casework, chairs, millwork, mouldings, veneers, wood selection and much more. Of particular value are the exploded hidden details and cross sections of furniture construction. This treatise is truly an invaluable resource for those engaged in historical preservation and period reproduction.
