Product description

Review

"Like the furniture Michael Pekovich builds, his book is disarmingly beautiful and unfailingly useful. It brims with essential information for the designer and maker of furniture, all of it lucidly explained and illustrated. Pekovich is the best kind of teacher --one who has never stopped learning himself. His book will be an enduring wellspring of inspiration--for its furniture, its photographs, and for the generous spirit of its writing."

--Jonathan Binzen, Deputy Editor "Fine Woodworking "

"It's no surprise that the art director of Fine Woodworking should turn in such a beautifully rendered package, but the wisdom Mike Pekovich imparts herein might just unexpectedly delight you...He delivers the secrets of woodworking alchemy: keep it simple, sharpen, sharpen again, and value your mistakes."

--comedian, actor, woodworker, and author of Good Clean Fun "Nick Offerman "

"Mike Pekovich has done a gentle and beautiful job of explaining his approach to being in the shop and to becoming a furniture maker...Everyone can learn from his experience."

--Gary Rogowski "author of Handmade, Creative Focus in the Age of Distraction "

About the Author

Michael Pekovich's approach to designing and building furniture, as well as life in general, is that simple is usually better. A furniture maker, photographer, writer, teacher, and graphic designer, he puts his talents to use as the creative director at Fine Woodworking. Mike shares a small home in the woods of Connecticut with his wife, two children, and a cat.
