enjoyed your article. I also am a “Blackburn” fan. I met him once at The Woodworking Show while it was on it’s Kansas City stop, while he was doing demonstrations and selling his books. He signed his book for me, and I turn to his principles often.

I’m glad to hear that you liked the article. I have not read Blackburn’s book, but I’ve read many of his articles in FWW. I thought that the info provided in this particular piece of his was a good intro to the various techniques using the Golden Ratio as a tool for furniture design.

Thanks for reading and taking to time to comment!
