This volume presents photos of Krenovs own cabinets alongside furniture designed and made by his students. Included are short essays by Krenov, along with remarks by his former students on his role in their lives, their own views on craftsmanship, their material, and their lives as craftsmen. Krenovs thoughts on why he works with wood, on working with colour and figure variations in wood, and on crafsmanship will interest novice and experienced woodworkers alike.
