These days I’ve been thinking more and more about wood/projects. Check out a bunch of books from the library… watch a lot of Woodworks… but usually I end up not truly inspired by projects I learn how to build… keyholders with swans on top… bland crafty crap. I might glean a hint of something important, but often times not…
I did get this book off ebay, and it’s great… How to Build Modern Furniture by Mario Dal Fabbro… straight out of the 50s. Well, that’s not EXACTLY my copy- mine’s actually prettier, but I’m gonna build a table out of it. and who knows what all. Cool magazine holders or something.
Also, Thomas Wold posted this long, detailed explanation on how he builds his wild Block Party unit.
Man, it’s got pics galore, cornball explanations, and tons of insight. Basically, I ain’t finding it in the 684 Dewey decimal section of the library. Thanks Mr. Wold.
