Doors & Drawers: A Complete Guide to Design and Construction
Andy Rae, The Taunton Press, 2007
Tomasi Design was featured in the “Curved Frame and Panel Doors” chapter of Doors & Drawers, an award-winning publication about how to design and build perfect doors and drawers.
The book, written by expert cabinetmaker Andy Rae, showcases a coopered-door cabinet designed by Chris Tomasi to demonstrate best-practice techniques in cabinet door design.
Following is the excerpt from the book:
“Coves Hide the Joints. Chris Tomasi coved the staves on the front of his coopered-door cabinet before glue-up, adding a scalloped effect while side-stepping the issue of smoothing the glued-up face.”
