I hardly ever build from published...

David T from Cypress, CA Posted September 26, 2012
I hardly ever build from published plans, especially those in the woodworking magazines. After all, why would I want to custom-build the same thing every other guy in America is building this month, and make all of the same mistakes that were included in the original plan? I'd just as soon make my own, completely original mistakes, thank you..For those who prefer to design their own furniture, this book includes many pointers and methods to help set you on the right track. From sketching and refining a concept, through some particular problem-solving methods of construction, this collection of articles from Fine Woodworking Magazine can help to give your design process a more definite direction. I only wish, having been a fine arts major, that this book included a bit more about form, line, positive and negatine space, and the other details that, for example, make a piece of furniture seem light and airy or heavy and solid..Also recommended is Illustrated Cabinetmaking: How to Design and Construct Furniture That Works, by Bill Hylton {Fox Chapel Press}. He includes a bit less of design, but a lot more of construction and period styles.
