DustySawbuck DustySawbuck writes: I don't worry about winning the book. I've read the book description in the Tauton bookstore and it would appear that this is a collection of articles from past issues of Fine Woodworking. Additionally, one can browse the Fine Woodworking archives or go to the videos and even download the plans for a project if one fancies a try at building one of these pieces. I saved all my old issues starting 20 years back and I scan the old copies when I am looking for a new project. Rereading the old mags is a keen way to freshen up tricks and tips, as well.

rmantell rmantell writes: Building a chair can be the most challenging and rewarding project for a woodworker. It certainly should be on everyone's bucket project list. For many of us, looking at that first chair might want to make you chuck it in the fireplace, as your eyes gravitate to small errors in rake and splay, spacing of spindles etc. This is all part of the learning curve and once you've completed about a dozen, you have earned the right to call yourself a chair maker!

CaptMikeF CaptMikeF writes: As a custom plywood manufacturer I've been making tops for furniture makers for over a decade it would be nice to learn how to build the rest of the table ourselves and sell some finished products. My staff have made some simple tables but nothing that would match the tops we make.

dadnukum dadnukum writes: One must always be careful when making chairs. People see that you have that skill and bring you their late 20th century Walmart chair for repairs. I ended up with four chairs in my shop before I could put up barbed wire. One was fun, it was a mid-century chair, and repairing it involved turning new spindles, carving the arm and matching the finish. The other ones were originally assembled with drywall screws. Sheesh.
Can't wait to see this book and build more skills!

johnkristoff johnkristoff writes: With an above the shoot storage filled to overflowing with chairs that need repair, your post spurred be to begin work on them. I am always buying broken chairs at the local Restore (Habitat for Humanity) and love the varieties of style available as "junk". It seems that straps, clamps, and glue are only a part of the picture, the reason I'v not found time to begin restoration.

The Quintessential Workshop piece heightened my interest in restoration once again. Thank you.
