Detailed Description

The Why and How of Woodworking: A Simple Approach to Making Meaningful Work. Author, Michael Pekovich


In The Why & How of Woodworking, author and Fine Woodworking magazine's art director Michael Pekovich explains how to create furniture and other pieces that are meaningful, purposeful, and beautiful. A book like no other, The Why & How of Woodworking is about taking a simple approach to making furniture, with the acknowledgment that the basics are enough - that what you're making is well suited to its function, pleasing to the eye, and built to last. Mike Pekovich's compelling philosophy is as rare today as well-crafted work. But it's not just his outstanding craftsmanship that resonates with his 152,000 Instagram followers. Mike is a thoughtful teacher who communicates why he loves woodworking and why you should, too.

Three introductory chapters dive deep into the fundamentals of woodworking, covering everything from choosing lumber to creating striking designs to essential hand tool skills, before transitioning into five project sections: cabinets, boxes, chests, casework, and tables. Throughout the projects, with their step-by-step instruction and guidance, Mike provides inspiration and design advice to help woodworkers and furniture makers develop their own style as they create work that is meaningful to them.
