DIY Furniture HELP!

Post by Dipsy90 »

I am thinking of making myself some furniture for living history, but am not a carpenter (so i cant make these things up in my head from pictures).
Does anyone have any plans/drawings of how to make authentic looking beds, chairs and tables etc. that they can share with me?
I am looking to make things that may be suitable for 15th and 17th century.

Thank-you :)

Pretty much the best starter book about there is, both volumes worth getting.
