Description

Following his personal experiences as a novice carpenter, designer/maker of fine furniture, and a teacher, Korn explores the nature and rewards of creative practice. Furniture making, practiced as a craft in the twenty-first century, is a decidedly marginal occupation. For woodworker Peter Korn, the challenging work of bringing something new and meaningful into the world through one's own volition is exactly what generates the authenticity, meaning, and fulfillment for which many of us yearn. In this book, he explores the nature and rewards of creative practice.
