Reproducing a piece of furniture can be a challenge when you don't have a set of plans. In this video, Phil Lowe shows you how to take measurements off an existing piece of furniture, create a set of plans, and then reproduce the piece in the workshop. You'll learn how to make simple aids to take measurements without damaging the furniture and how to use these measurements to make a set of full-size plans. You'll see how to make free hand sketches, use story sticks to find dimensions, scribe profiles of curved parts, measure and analyze hidden joinery, make templates from drawings, and use templates to rough-out parts. A specialist in period furniture, Phil Lowe was an instructor at the North Bennet Street School in Boston for more than a decade. He currently designs and builds furniture in his own custom chair and cabinet shop and contributes frequently to Fine Woodworking Magazine. Running time 55 minutes.
