For more than two decades, the authors have pieced together how early Joint Stools were constructed using a handful of written sources, the tool marks on surviving examples and endless experimentation in their workshops. "Make a Joint Stool from a Tree: An Introduction to 17th-century Joinery." Is a book that starts in the woodlot, wedging open a piece of green oak, and it ends in the shop with mixing your own paint using pigment and linseed oil. It's an almost-breathtaking journey because it covers aspects of the craft that most modern woodworkers would never consider. And yet Alexander and Follansbee cover every detail of construction with such clarity that even beginning woodworkers will have the confidence to build a joint stool, an iconic piece of furniture from the 17th century.
