Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Laminated and pierced, beaded and inset, whittled and sliding -- handles, hinges, and knobs are too often forgotten little afterthoughts. Yet these fixtures can transform a run-of-the-mill wood object into something extraordinary. With 30 projects devoted completely to these accessories, you won't have a "badly dressed'' piece of furniture again! A turned mushroom knob looks attractive on a cabinet door, while an elaborate whittled knob is a work of art in itself. The lift-latch combines a traditional style with clean, modern lines. And this tongue-and-groove bead hinge is clearly something you won't find in the average store! Other designs here include a Stickley Arts and Crafts Knob, a Recessed Folk Art Flower Knob, a Chinese Pin Latch, and a Leaf Spring Latch. A discussion on how to create your own handles, hinges, latches, and catches lays bare all the intricacies of several fascinating techniques. Numerous drawings, photographs, and explicit instructions ensure that you do the job right!
