About this title


How to Build Modern Furniture, first published in two volumes in 1951 and 1952, is a classic, practical guide to making simple, well-proportioned furniture in the home workshop. Profusely illustrated with detailed plans and drawings, the book brings together dozens of construction techniques and furniture plans, along with detailed construction advice for every step of the process. Long out-of-print, the two volumes are now available in a single book. In Volume One: Practical Construction Methods, author Mario Dal Fabbro details the basics tools and methods of woodworking and furniture making. In Volume Two: Designs and Assembly, he describes the tools and equipment needed for the novice to advanced woodworker, followed by methods of woodworking and an extensive catalog of furniture plans for the home.

About the Author: Mario Dal Fabbro (1913-1990) was an Italian craftsman designer known for his functional, yet elegant, designs of contemporary furniture. During his long career, his output was prodigious as he designed hundreds of pieces of furniture for private individuals and also for important Milan furniture houses. Fabbro came to the United States in 1948 and continued his design work for American manufacturers. Fabbro authored several books on furniture design and construction, and was a contributor to the do-it-yourself pages of many newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times and House and Garden.
