About the Author
Regarded by his contemporaries as one of the best cabinetmakers, the late Ernest Joyce not only supervised his own hand workshop but also acted as part-time Head of Furniture at one of the leading Colleges of Art until his retirement in 1969. Alan Peters carried out a 7-year apprenticeship to Edward Barnsley followed by a two-year spell at college on a craft teacher-training course. He then won a scholarship to the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London to study interior design. He established his first workshop in 1962, and moved down to Devon in 1973. He has won numerous awards and honours throughout his professional career, and in 1986 his work was the subject of a one-man touring exhibition. In 1984 he published Cabinet-Making: The Professional Approach.

The book covers every aspect of making furniture including materials,tools,equipment,construction,fixtures and fittings,setting out,draughtsmanship and includes examples of completed furniture designs.
When I am starting a new project and require information, on say construction or fixtures and fittings I always find an answer to my question in this book.
It is worth the money.
It's wonderfully clear and concise. There's no padding out, it's just facts advice, facts advice, from start to finish.
The instructions are so clear, after reading you feel you could attempt some of the wonderful furniture in the photographs.
Once read you can appreciate why this book, in all it's incarnations, is so highly thought of.
If you have an interest in woodwork or furniture making, you need this book. There is so much covered in it you could go chapter by chapter and gain an understanding you didn't possess at page one.
