The late Carlyle Lynch (1909-1989) was an inspired teacher of woodwork, drafting, and metalwork. He was a furniture maker and author with a lifelong passion for classic American furniture. Lynch took it upon himself to measure outstanding pieces of 18th and 19th century American furniture and to create detailed drawings so that the furniture could be reproduced by woodworkers who shared his passion. The furniture items for which Lynch prepared drawings read like greatest hits of American furniture: Four-poster bed; Windsor chair; Queen Anne table and many other great pieces.
Each set of Carlyle Lynch measured drawings is accompanied by a detailed parts list with measurements, a list of hardware, and notes detailing any extra information that might be required, such as certain construction details.
