Product Description


Chairmaking is widely considered to be the pinnacle of woodworker's art. Mysterious. Intimidating. Impossible. The reality is that chairmaking is fulfilling, rewarding, and fun.

About the author:
Jeff Miller designs, builds, writes, and teaches furniture making in his Chicago studio. He is also a frequent lecturer at woodworking seminars. He has received numerous awards and his work can be found in museum collections.
