The six projects in this collection of contemporary furniture all have the clean lines and details that are hallmarks of the style. The term "contemporary," though, is a broad umbrella - these builds cover a wide range of forms and techniques. In "City Sideboard," Mario Rodriguez shows you how to build a piece that has the feel of updated Shaker with a bit of James Krenov mixed in. Using plywood and a few construction tricks, Mario shows you how to save time and money on this and similar projects. Steve Shanesy forgoes legs and visible hangers to create a floating effect for his "Wall-Mounted Server." Find out how to use a torsion box to add strength, and you'll also learn must-know tips on pattern routing. Matthew Teague and Megan Fitzpatrick show you two design approaches to wall-hung cabinets: Megan blends the organic look of a live-edge top with clean contemporary lines, while Matthew shows you how to build a classic Krenov cabinet. Christopher Schwarz teaches you how to build a set of sturdy leaning bookshelves. And in a classic "I Can Do That" project, Megan outlines how you can build a set of contemporary shelves with dimensional lumber in just a few hours of work.
