Do-It-Yourself Designer Furniture

Richard Entwistle, Author Sterling Publishing (NY) $12.95 (160p) ISBN 978-0-8069-6344-0
Commercial designer Entwistle tells how to make tables, chairs, cabinets, shelves, beds, etc., that have a cleancut contemporary yet classic look, a style he borrowswith attributionsfrom Italian designers of the last 20 years. The simplicity of basic construction is inviting to the nonprofessional, and ""perfect results'' are attainable, the author promises, if the step-by-step numbered instructions are followed exactly. A color-picture portfolio catalogues many projects from which to choosefor example, a kitchen work station, a crosspanel-supported coffee table. For each, detailed instructions with diagrams and line drawings on materials, measurement, cutting, joining and finishing are provided. A refreshing ``next stage'' for do-it-yourself woodworkers eager to move beyond basic projects. (September)
