Medieval Furniture: Plans and Instructions for Historical Reproductions
Following the success of Constructing Medieval Furniture (0-8117-2795-5), this new book offers 14 more designs for historic pieces from the Middle Ages-a game board, tax box, writing slope, church pew, hewn-timber chest, library shelves, half-tester bed, ambry, wheelbarrow, coffer, work table, cathedral cabon, Spanish settle, and barrel chair. The detailed plans are based on careful study and measurement of accurate reproductions or originals from European museums. Step-by-step instructions, materials lists, and notes on woodworking, metalworking, carving, and finishes provide the means for creating history in the home workshop. A brief survey of medieval decorating and a directory of sources complete this authoritative book.
