Devoted to design principles, influences, appreciation, and application, this fully illustrated manual presents a thoroughly unique approach to becoming a professional furniture maker and designer.
Examples of work suitable for both batch production and one-off commission work are discussed, as well as the tools and machinery required for a variety of working situations.
Business efficiency methods are also explored, including the available professional help such as accountants and solicitors who may ease the paperwork side of running a business, in addition to the promotional aspects--exhibitions, press coverage, gallery display, and photography--that are so essential to growth.
This handbook is indispensable to any self-employed craftsman, student, or woodworker looking to start a business.
