STRAIGHT FROM THE EXPERTS.  Have you ever wished you could sit down with a great furniture maker and get solid advice on design, joinery, or techniques for a project you want to build? How about nine great makers in one place? This collection comes straight from the pages of Fine Woodworking magazine and the shops of some of the most talented woodworkers we know. In it, you’ll find tips on everything from how to design lighter and stronger furniture to how to keep cabinet doors closed. You’ll learn milling strategies that will help you get the most from your lumber, and see how fine details make a difference in furniture design. Plus you’ll get plenty of plans: Make a country hutch, a drop-leaf table that expands to seat six, or choose from a wide range of other projects in styles from Arts and Crafts to Shaker.
