The Dunlaps of New Hampshire began making fine furniture in the mid-1700s. Their distinctive tables, chests, chairs, and clockcases have their origins in the traditions that the Scots-Irish brought to the New World. Most Dunlap works are now in museums where they are studied by scholars, but thanks to the book's detailed scaled drawings and Donald Dunlap's construction notes, woodworkers can undertake the challenging proportions and ornament practiced by the Dunlaps. The 14 projects range from a simple knife box to an intricate tall clock and include a one-drawer stand, tea table, and desk.
