James Krenov's views on craftsmanship have enlightened and inspired woodworkers around the world."-- American Woodworker

Sharing his legendary techniques for coopered doors, doweling, dovetail joints, frame-and-panel work, and other cabinetry details, master craftsman Krenov shows how to shape wood the way it was meant to be shaped. He elevates cabinetry to a true art. Beginning with the most essential part of cabinetry--selecting and preparing wood--he shares his beliefs about respecting the integrity of the material, and how grain and color will enhance the design. Krenov then demonstrates the first-rate execution and flawless finished surfaces that are the hallmark of his craft, and can be for any woodworker. Photos throughout show his workshop, and provide a close-up look at the details of cabinetmaking.
