From the Back of the Case
Furniture is pleasing to the eye when various elements work together to create a harmonious whole. 18th Century furniture design, like architecture, relied heavily on proportional schemes derived from classical architectural orders. Today’s furniture makers can use these design principles to create contemporary or period furniture. George Walker demonstrates how to use this approach to create visual harmony.
Design is one of those topics that woodworkers either love or hate. George Walker demystifies the concepts and ideas that were previously untouchable by the average weekend woodworker. His focus on simple whole number ratios will give even the newest woodworker hope that they can design their own furniture with generally pleasing proportions. The DVD is masterfully filmed and edited and you will quickly find yourself forgetting that you are watching a woodworking DVD. Frankly, this is the highest quality woodworking-related production we have ever seen. In spite of this, the topic matter is still a little difficult to digest in one sitting, but it is definitely worth your time to do so. We feel this DVD is a must-have for ALL woodworkers who want delve into the world of design and certainly deserves a space in your reference DVD collection.
