Book Description

Aug. 3 2010 500 Series
From a closed hutch and bedside table to cupboards, curios, and a waterfall chest of drawers, these 500 outstanding contemporary cabinets showcase the art and craft of fine furniture making. These newly made works celebrate shape, joinery, detailing, color, or the subtle combination of all those qualities. Above all, each piece testifies to the design and technical skills of its creator, and has that most precious element of all: imagination.

Product Description


“A cool new book … Most of the cabinets are contemporary, and almost all of them are fun to look at. All the staff members here have been paging through these books since they arrived. I really like these books because you get to see a wide range of work, and it's usually beautifully presented.”
– Christopher Schwarz, editor of Popular Woodworking Magazine
“For another huge helping of inspiration, I totally enjoy perusing 500 Cabinets: A Showcase of Design & Craftsmanship. I remember spending hours looking through Fine Woodworking's design books when I was younger, and today we have the 500 Series of books – the series includes books on tables and chairs. While the pieces in this book are mainly contemporary, this is one of those books that I look to for ideas or simply to get my creative juices flowing.” – Glen D. Huey, senior editor, Popular Woodworking Magazine
"If you are looking for ideas for a project, an excellent source is Lark Books' 500 Series. While this series covers many craft media, woodworkers will find the most inspiration from 500 Cabinets, 500 Tables, 500 Chairs, 400 Wood Boxes, and 500 Wood Bowls. Even if you are not looking for ideas, there is much in these books to appreciate and enjoy. You will probably do lots of nodding, plenty of eye widening, some jaw dropping, and, naturally, some wincing. Each book delivers a huge quantity of outstanding work." – Rob Porcaro, Heartwood: Inside the Woodshop

I love boxes and what is a chest of drawers -
but boxes in a cabinet................
it shows the funny side of craftsmen as they
build things that tickle their funny bones.
a must "browse" book for every carpenter
no matter what how accomplished.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best July 21 2010
By Nicholas John Chandler - Published on Amazon.com
From time to time a series of books creates a cult following, like those of Carlos Castenada, and this book 500 Cabinets will certainly excite those of us fortunate enough to be selected to show off their best new work. Its a juried selection, thats to say that not everyone that submitted work got in. Now that I like. Its not vanity press publishing, but genuine effort has been made to select only the best examples by a jury of our peers. As the eagerly awaited follow-on to 500 Chairs and 500 Tables, this tome shows us the best of designer makers not only in the USA but further afield - UK, Finland, Israel, Holland, Australia and Ireland, making this book much more interesting to dedicated followers of fine furniture fashions. It is a marker of time, showing the state of the art of designing and making mainly wooden furntire as we see it today in 2010. Now there's a thing - one can repeat this book title in, say, 10 years time. What will we see then? It will stimulate debate, it will thrill interior designers, it will provoke arguments, and make our parents very proud indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding survey for arts and interior design libraries Nov. 13 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
500 CABINETS: A SHOWCASE OF DESIGN & CRAFTSMANSHIP provides a fine survey of 500 cabinets which are works of art as much as functional furniture. They cover special techniques in shape, detailing, color or more and John Grew Sheridan, himself a leading furniture maker, invites readers to appreciate the qualities of these unique pieces in an outstanding survey for arts and interior design libraries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for Creativity and Inspriation Jan. 23 2014
By Adam B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although some comments refer to this book as a picture book, which is true, I found it to be excellent. There are many fine designs (and some very weird ones) that can challenge your thinking, especially if you are like me, and you like to see lots of photos to get your brain working when trying to find inspiration for unique work. This book is not for everyone, but it was perfect for me.
