Rafael Nathan is a self-taught, professional cabinetmaker who has designed and built furniture for over 30 years. Passionate about hand tools and the beauty of combining woods, his work focuses on functional projects such as tables, cabinets, and accessories, including boxes and trays. For Raf, one the key components in the journey of woodworking is the knowledge obtained - what works and what doesn't - during the construction of every project. Raf currently runs a workshop in Australia near Brisbane and is the former co-publisher of the leading woodwork magazine, Australian Wood Review.
Twenty-one beautiful wooden furniture projects ... beautifully and profusely illustrated ... superbly organized and presented. Truly extraordinary and highly recommended for personal, professional, and community library do-it-yourself woodworking instructional reference collections. --Midwest Book Review
