    This book explains in full detail how furniture is constructed and why. There are many different types of joinery methods out there and this book does a good job at covering the reasons why each is used as well as the advantages and disadvantages to each.

    I loved how this book covers almost every important piece of furniture that was designed in history. I showed me that there is no original design out there because every idea is inspired by a previous design.
