Studio Furniture: Today’s Leading Woodworkers No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

Description: Meet more than 50 master wood craftsmen who reveal new designs in this book dedicated exclusively to the emerging studio furniture movement. Furniture ranges from footstools to elaborate entertainment and office centers, each exquisite and unique in its execution. Featured are craftsmen who work in local lumber they mill on their private lots alongside artists who inlay precious, exotic woods from far corners of the earth. Some celebrate the natural art in the edges and grain of wood while others contort wood into seemingly impossible balances and configurations. The vast range of imagination and craftsmanship will delight as you peruse this collection of over 400 lush images, most of them never before seen in print. You’ll revisit each page time and again.

AT,
All you’ve done is paste the borders description into the blog.
Are you in the book?
If you have it, how about some examples of craftsmanship and imagination that struck you?
I could be interested in the book, but need to know a little more than the borders spin.

Steve.

Steve,
My Apologies, I was in the middle of finishing this post when I was call away.. Yes, I am actually in the book; and my purpose for posting it here was not only because I am in the book, but because I have spent hours since it came out admiring the work of all of the other 59 artist in the book. All of you talented craftsmen on this site, myself included, seem to thrive on the creativity and craftsmanship of the other “Artist” here. So after going through the book several times, I decided to share this book with all of you. I have been very privileged to get to know, and exhibit with several of the other artist in this book, and I was honored to be chosen as one of the 60 they chose. Actuall Steve, the book is kind of like this site, every page you turn inspires you to want to fire up the table saw…

Now for that book review: Aside from the handsome fellow on page 230 “Me”, the inclusion of talent in the book is overwhelming, you really need to go through it several times to get the full effect. From the well known works of Michael Puryear and David Lunin, to the absolute overpowering Asian works of Glen Guarino the book did not disappoint. What I really like is that the publisher included several very talented women in the book, Katie Hundall, Sabiha Mujtaba, and my favorite, Pat Morrow, not to be missed for sure….
So if you are a wood or furniture enthusiast,, this book is a very good addition to you library…
Large hard bound 240 pages…

I had to come back and say congrats for getting such nice coverage in this book.

I bought it earlier this year and I remember taking note of your work because I especially liked “Fire.” My wife had even commented she really liked that one too, she has good taste and knows good furniture:)

Your design style is similar to some of the ideas I have had rolling around in my head.

Once again congrats. It is a beautiful book and to be included with the other high caliber artists is very prestigious.

Maybe someday…
