The author's cabinetry work is in museum collections around the world. This volume contains reflections on his life and work as a cabinet maker - not just the how but the why of a way of living and working with wood. Cabinetmakers, amateur or otherwise, will be interested in the discussion of wood that the author uses (air-dried and flitch-cut), tools (he makes his own), as well as the individual pieces illustrated. All those interested in encouraging fine crafts - educators and museum people - and the public who will receive the work of the cabinetmaker will find a new awareness of wood, one of the richest materials available to the crafter.
