We approach cabinet construction in these designs, in it we should make such use as seems practicable of the theory put forwurd in "Architectural Composition" by Professor John Beverly Robinson, in The Architectural BeoOVd, where he suggests the three-part combination in good architectural designs. This theory is sum marized in the chapter on Form and Vn>portkm in the author*s book, "JftM/bhiM in Wood Turning." In the introduction to this volume its application to furniture design is dimmsmd.
