Extract from back cover of book:

Build Your Skills as You Build Solid Seating...

Inside, you’ll find step-by-step photos and instruction, plus measured drawings, for 17 seating projects in a wide range of styles and skill levels. Projects range from simple, square stools to more challenging chairs and benches with compound joints. You’ll learn how to use the best tools for the job to cut all types of must-know chair joinery, simple turning techniques, upholstery and more.

You’ll also find four technique articles with instruction applicable for many chairmaking and other projects.

While there are no quick and easy shortcuts to making chairs, with these 17 pieces, you’ll build the skills you need to make seating for every room in the house — and the garden, too!
