In case you haven't seen it, Taunton/Fine Wood Working magazine has hit
a home run with their latest on the newsstands: "How to Design Furniture
- From Classic to Contemporary".
Chock full of valuable information - from ergonomics, to classic
moldings and how they're used, to tips on design drawing, scaling from
photos, drafting, along with a concise analysis of the elements that
make up the various styles of furniture. Also included - a five page
article by Tim Killen on using Sketchup for designing and creating plans
for woodworking projects, with lots of examples.
Basically, a must have for woodworkers who design and build their own
furniture, or aspire to do so, and guaranteed to be a treasured
... worth many times the $8.99 retail price.
