Instead, he discusses, in a very literate way, the basic tenets of design and furniture making, and writes with respect for the readers ability to understand and succeed in designing his or her own furniture. He encourages the would-be furniture designer to work with materials at hand, not just the finest (and most exhorbitantly expensive) hardwoods, and treats furniture design and construction not as a goal, but as a process, using ones brains and ones hands to create ones own singular and pleasing furniture. An unusual approach and a very satisfying read.
