Handcrafted cabinetry Reviews
I bought this book specifically for Lonnie Bird's two articles:The Eastern Shore of Virginia Corner Cabinet and The Philadelphia Highboy. I'm halfway done with the corner cupboard.

Like the previous commentator, I bought this book for the same cabinet plans. In trying to get all my dimensions correct, I actually drew a full scale shelf to confirm the dimensions in the book, and that's when I discovered several downright inexcusable errors.
