    How to Build Modern Furniture, first published in two volumes in 1951 and 1952, is a classic, practical guide to making simple, well-proportioned furniture in the home workshop. Profusely illustrated with detailed plans and drawings, the book brings together dozens of construction techniques and furniture plans, along with detailed construction advice for every step of the process. Long out-of-print, the two volumes are now available in a single book. In Volume One: Practical Construction Methods, author Mario Dal Fabbro details the basics tools and methods of woodworking and furniture making. In Volume Two: Designs and Assembly, he describes the tools and equipment needed for the novice to advanced woodworker, followed by methods of woodworking and an extensive catalog of furniture plans for the home.
