From dust jacket:

"This book takes a fascinating look at contemporary design in wood in the countries where modern wood craft originated. The author, a leading authority on handicrafts, ignores distracting fads and goes straight to the heart of his subject: the natural beauty of wood and its potential in contemporary design.

Comprehensive coverage is given to such varied aspects of wood craft as portable furniture that you can assemble yourself, children's toys, sculpture, and even pipes. Hundreds of exciting examples of new work by young designers, including eight pages in color, illustrate the versatility of the medium and make this a vital source book for craftsmen, educators, decorators, and do-it-yourself buffs, as well as anyone else who cares about fine design.
