Make your own beautiful mid-century wooden objects for the home.

With over 80 projects, from the simple to the advanced, this is the perfect book to progress your woodworking skills and create something beautiful for your home. These sought-after classic designs from the 1950s and ’60s include a range of items for home and garden, from simple display shelves, bookends, and a tray, to a chest of drawers and a desk.

Every project includes a clear pattern and diagrams, detailed step-by-step instructions, and illustrations of the finished pieces. The projects are arranged by level of difficulty as you go through the book; some suit those fairly new to woodworking and some work best for more experienced hands. Packed with useful tips and hints, and featuring spotlights on individual techniques within every chapter, this book is perfect not just as a project book but also as a way to build up your knowledge. No complicated equipment is needed, and all projects can be made at home.

So whether you want the iconic curves of a mid-century coffee table, the warmth of walnut wood in a cabinet, or the clean lines in an easy chair, this book has it all.
A.W.P. Kettless was a master craftsman, carpenter, joiner, and also artist with years of experience in making furniture and wood decoration, and also the author of several books on woodworking.
