This book and the PBS series of the same name are spin-offs of the very popular This Old House TV series. Emphasizing traditional methods of joinery adapted to the use of power tools, this handsome volume covers a dozen furniture projects of classic Shaker and Colonial design. An abundance of high-quality photos and drawings nicely augment the detailed instructions. This seems to be for the more experienced woodworker having access to an especially well-equipped workshop. An introductory chapter, intended to present the basics of tools, joinery techniques, and wood selection, likewise appears far too sketchy for the novice furniture builder. Whatever its audience, public libraries will probably find this in demand.
