Devoted to design principles, influences, appreciation, and application, this well illustrated book presents a thoroughly unique approach to furniture making and design. There are fully illustrated examples of work suitable for both batch production and one-off commission work. Nine designs are drawn to scale with elevations, plans and detailed cutting lists.

A brief introduction to the craft furniture movement (Craftsman Furniture), the Cotswold School and the creative craftsmen of the period is followed by an outline of the Froxfield workshops and the author �s own training under Edward Barnsley.
