Woodworkers use these books as a source of inspiration and project ideas.
Interior designers and architects use them as a means to keep up with the latest trends in furniture design. The series has been published since 1977, to date, seven Design Books have been published, the last in 1996. The series is being expanded in response to reader requests. Past design books were basically a catalogue of woodworking projects selected by a panel of experts.
Design Book Eight will depart from that tradition by featuring fewer examples, but offering design talk about each piece as well as detail shots. The book is organized by class of furniture: Tables, Chairs, Desks, Cabinets, Book cases, Home Entertainment Furniture, Beds and Bureaus.
