The name says it all.
Turn your woodshop scrap lumber into simple, inexpensive pieces of furniture that are both sturdy and attractive. Fast Furniture shows you how with 15 intriguing projects that defy all expectations, including a wide variety of tables, a bedspread valet, a desk, a mirror frame and more.
None of these plans require complex furniture and cabinetmaking joints such as dovetails, dowels, miters or mortise-and-tenons. In these projects, you'll use flat sticks of different lengths cut with squared ends--no angles, curves or grooves. Author and woodworker Armand Sussman's project assembly methods are unique, both simple and straightforward--using only a few saw cuts and glue.
You'll also find tips for getting started, timesaving tricks and special techniques that will make each project easy and trouble-free to construct. Additional advice on table-saw sled construction, assembly jigs, clamps, glues, glass use, sanding and finishing ensure that every project turns out just right. You'll start turning your woodshop leftovers into sleek, elegant furniture in no time at all.
