This book has something for everybody and the projects range from Spice boxes, chest of drawers, Shaker casework, Quilt cabinet to pencil-post bed, Windsor/Chippendale chair, and the very elaborate roll-top desk shown on the cover.
I immediately found three very nice projects for myself.

The text, by The Taunton Press is a collection of 25 articles that were published in the Fine Woodworking magazine. These include not only plans of the pieces made, but also a wealth of information on technique, history, practical advice and personal experience. You could say that the reader receives a bit of tuition from some of America's top furniture makers. The plans are very comprehensive and were developed by Carlyle Lynch from original pieces in museums and family collections.

I can really recommend this book to the intermediate woodworker.

This book is not very well written and realisticly for the American market. The furniture dipicted in the book would not really be used in a modern home, would be better suited as a restoration or "How to Copy" old furniture.

An extremely disapponiting book and buy.

Not for the Novice 25 Aug 2008
By WJH - Published on Amazon.com
This book provides a list and description of 24 projects, compiled from various authors and craftsmen taken from the pages of Fine Woodworking over a period of several years. The "plans" lack any uniformity. Some have dimensions of projects listed, while others don't. Some have a parts list, while others list nothing. Do not expect exploded views and measurements, tool requirements, parts lists, assembly sequence, or anything that I would consider as actual "plans." This book is more a few photos and drawings with a narrative of how they constructed their items. The reader is expected to have a detailed working knowledge of furniture construction to understand the terms used and how to properly make certain cuts, a knowldge of joinery, etc. Again, this is not the novice woodworker.

Interesting, but not a book of plans 3 April 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Not what I thought it was. Just a compilation of articles from "Fine Woodworking." Not project plans like I was expecting. You could build from this, but quite a challenge for an average woodworker.
