In this age of specialization, disciplines are often disconnected; the designer designs, the cabinetmaker builds, and the installer installs. As a result, continuity is lost and quality often suffers. This new book enables individuals to complete each step of the process necessary to create a magnificent 18th century paneled room, relying upon a hands-on, experiential approach.Here, both novices and experienced professionals find valuable design insight, as well as solid, practical methods of cabinet construction. From the basics of design to the finishing touches, readers are taken through the complete building process as beneficiaries of the author’s years of fine cabinetmaking experience. 260 color photographs and 20 drawings show steps in the choice and purchase of materials, and the process of building cabinetry and paneling, passage doors, and moldings. This book is a valuable resource for amateur and professional cabinetmakers alike. Only rarely does so talented a craftsman share his secrets and wisdom so clearly.
