Nothing could be lovelier than a traditional Swedish table or a decoratively shaped mirror frame. Their balanced forms and simple finish have a timeless elegance that suits both modern and traditional homes. The 35 woodworking projects in this book come directly from Sweden’s past, and the original pieces can be seen in famous Swedish museums. Many of the pieces evoke familiar early American styles, but with a distinctive Swedish touch. The projects include small and easy-to-make things such as a plate rack, child’s stool, tray, and simple cutting boards. Others are larger and more challenging, like the stepladder. Each piece is photographed and every detail is accuarately described. Step-by step instructions and expertly drawn how-to diagrams are given for every project. There are also instructions for traditional Swedish finishing, painting and staining methods.
