This book is more than a historical account: it is a complete manual for the modern woodworker, explaining in clear text and hundreds of photographs, working drawings, and other illustrations how to make more than a hundred colonial-style articles. There are projects suitable for hand tools, for portable power tools, and for woodworking machinery. Some are faithful copies of museum pieces, others are practical modern adaptations; some are relatively simple projects for beginners, others are more demanding undertakings that will satisfy the most exacting cabinetmaker. Here is everything one needs to know, from how to order lumber to how to finish colonial furniture - and finally, a thorough index makes each item in this rich store of information and inspiration immediately accessible to the craftsman.
