Furniture-makers today are working in the widest range of idioms imaginable and, while able to draw on traditional techniques, can let their work develop free of constraint on design. This abundance of choice is reflected in these projects, compiled from Furniture & Cabinetmaking magazine, which not only provide a useful source of ideas for furniture, but also some refreshing and innovative approaches to making it.

There is something here to please all tastes: ranging from traditional pieces, such as an early 16th-century-style trestle dining table, and linenfold chest, to an Arts & Crafts-inspired writing desk and dressing table mirror to a deceptively simple bed and a desk and chair designed for a musician.

All the projects are devised by practising cabinetmakers who are fine craftsmen, and the clear instructions, fine photographs and comprehensive illustrations will help to ensure a pleasing result.
