About the Author

Roger Horwood started woodworking at school in High Wycombe, England (the center of the British chair-making industry). In 1969 he moved to South Africa, where he has continued to work with wood, building just about every type of freestanding furniture--both modern and period pieces--in a variety of soft, hard, and exotic woods. Horwood is also the author of Step-by-Step Wooden Toys.
