Keep it simple, keep it basic, keep it fun! Simply-Built Furniture is part of Danny Proulx’s legacy to the woodworking world. He showed us that furniture doesn’t have to be ornate or highly decorated to achieve a “timeless” status. Sometimes simple is best. Simple lines and simple joinery. This collection brings together special projects from Proulx’s 16 books—most of which are now out of print—with pieces such as a rustic pine chest of drawers, a bed with built-in storage, a window seat, a contemporary display cabinet, a tall bookcase, an armoire work center, a writing desk, a memorabilia sideboard, and more. Both beginning and experienced woodworkers will appreciate Proulx’s no-nonsense approach to woodworking and his easy style of teaching, as well as the minimal time and materials needed to create these beautiful projects that are more than a just another piece of furniture for your homes. The projects in this book will fit in almost any design setting and won’t become passe after a few years. And best of all, you can build this furniture with basic woodworking tools and easy-to-find materials. It’s really very simple.
