Measured Shop Drawings for American Furniture
Measured Shop Drawings for American Furniture
Moser, Thomas

Sterling Publishing Co. Inc., New York, 1985

Thos. Moser - one of the most widely acclaimed American furniture makers - reveals his own unique designs, techniques and philosophy for building beautiful long-lasting furniture in the tradition of fine craftsmanship. More than 400 photographs and measured shop drawings (each to scale with designers' notations and complete dimensions), a complete introduction to designing each furniture type, and a stunning eight-page colour section provide guidelines for making a wide array of chairs, tables, desks, chests, stools, dressers, cupboards, cabinets and beds. These pieces - influenced by Shaker, Chippendale, Hepplewhite and Sheraton designs - are rooted in the rich heritage of fine cabinetmaking that shuns unnecessary ornamentation and emphasizes the natural beauty of American hardwoods. They can all be adapted to suit your own needs, and include some of Moser's most famous pieces...
