Do you want to keep up with the latest ideas in contemporary furniture design? Here's the perfect way to explore 100 inspiring pieces that will spark your imagination and help you discover your next furniture-making project. Fine Woodworking Design Book Eight is the latest volume in our popular series highlighting the most innovative pieces in contemporary furniture design -- all selected by a juried panel of woodworking experts. Where earlier editions in this series were simply a catalog of woodworking projects, Design Book Eight features fewer examples but offers detailed descriptions of each piece, profiles of the craftsmen who made them -- and lots of fascinating information about their creative process. Complete with current examples of high-quality custom and production furniture, this 176 page book showcases the finest tables, cabinets, chairs, bookcases, desks, chests and accessories being made today -- with 250 high-quality full color photos and 20 illustrations. (Virtually all of the content in Design Book Eight has appeared in one of our special newsstand publications, entitled Furniture: 102 Contemporary Designs.) Designed for anyone interested in contemporary wooden furnishings -- whether you're a hobbyist, furniture maker or high-end aficionado -- this special collection is like having a virtual gallery delivered straight to your door. If you're passionate about elegant, well-designed, hand-crafted furniture, here's a beautiful, museum-quality book that will inform and inspire you.
