How To Design Furniture

In 2009 Taunton released a special issue of Fine Woodworking: How to Design Furniture.

As with most of their special issues, it's a collection of previous articles, all focusing on a single topic.

In this case, I think they cove the topic of furniture design wonderfully. There are articles about styles, creativity, proportion, drafting and even SketchUp.

This has always been one of my favorite design books. If you haven't had a chance to read it, now is the time. Taunton has re-released it as a magazine special issue.  I'd recommend you pick up a copy of the re-release. It's sure to prove a reference you'll use long after the current print run is gone.
