Learn to make an easy, contemporary dresser in Popular Woodworking November 2016. Christopher Schwarz teaches you to build this portable Danish modern piece using power (and a few hand) tools. Plus, Matthew Dworman shows you how to build an innocuous-seeming Shaker-style side table - with secret, hidden compartments! Make cabriole legs by hand (no wall sockets required) with period furniture builder Zachary Dillinger, and meet Maine's Brendan Burnhardt Gaffney and his ancient rules. Learn about proportions with George Walker, brasses with Orion Henderson and polymerized oil with Bob Flexner. And behold the winners of our fourth annual Excellence Awards!
Plus in this issue learn:
- How to build a console table with home store supplies.
- What a shrink pot is (and why Peter Follansbee can't stop making them).
- Why hand tool revivalist Christopher Schwarz loves his table saw and doesn't care who knows it.
