Functional, fashionable, fun-to-build furniture!

Break down the barriers that stop you from building the furniture you need. Even if you're short on tools, time or money, you can make practical, sturdy and cool stuff with the help of Chris Gleason - a maverick professional cabinetmaker with a sharp eye for design and little patience for fussy, ornate period furniture.

Armed with his revolutionary techniques, you'll learn how to build the sleek and modern furniture found in high-class furniture galleries. And you'll do it without a shop full of tools - or even a shop at all! All it takes are some inexpensive portable power tools and a place to work, like your garage or driveway.

  • Build a curved-side armoire in one day for less than $20!
  • Construct a blanket chest with a stylish angled base for only $40.
  • Make expandable hanging shelves for DVDs and CDs in only an hour.

Building Real Furniture for Everyday Life lets you sidestep intimidating traditional furniture techniques and build sensible furniture on a budget. All you need is a place to work, a place to put the finished pieces and the plans in this book.
