The Woodworkers Institute has just published a short and sweet review of “Campaign Furniture.” You can read the full review here. We’re now shipping the second printing of this book, which has a few corrections here and there.
I really would love to write a follow-up book; my research into the style didn’t stop when the book came out in winter 2014. First I have to finish my current book project (the end is in sight) and edit about six books from other authors before I can even consider hitting the campaign trail again.

I think you have to be a registered voter to run for office….
I don’t know about Kentucky, but you don’t in Ohio.
Have the first edition. Great book.
Sorry for the out of place question but not sure where to ask it so that it is seen. I emailed Brian a few days ago but have not heard anything yet.
I just wanted to check if anyone else was having an issue with the forum. Mine just keeps saying loading. Also there is a link on the page that says “loading” and when I click on that it asks me to login and if I put my UID/PWD it gives me a failed login message but the same UID/PWD lets me log into LAP and view account and past/pending orders.
Again, sorry for the out of place post.
Brian is AWOL right now because his wife just had their second baby. I’ve noticed the problem with the forum as well. It’s on my list to fix. Sorry.
OK. Thanks for the confirmation. And please pass on congratulations to Brian!
Nice review of a very good read. I’ve not yet built the chest from plans in the book, but the pressure from my daughter-in-law is increasing so no doubt it will move up on my list! Looking forward to the next book as well — no pressure though.
How long have you been waiting to use that closing line?
Oh no, another book for me to buy and a chest for me to promise to myself to build “someday”!
I need you to write it pretty soon… I have built a number of the pieces and the stool is a family favorite (seven so far). What’s not to love, leather and wood…
This is such a great book. I’ve decided to to make an office suite using a lot of the information in the book and then reworking it a bit.
I’m not sure where else to ask this so I’ll give it a shot here – I’m going to take the techniques you talk about in this book an apply them to a campaign desk – not so much a field desk – more like the stacking chests but only one stack – with three drawers (sorry, I’m having trouble explaining this and I don’t have the book right next to me…).
Anyway, my question is about a chair – I was going to make a Roorkhee to use as a desk chair but I think it may be too low. What would be a period appropriate type of chair for a campaign desk. I’ve seen a lot of the style of desk I want to build being sold as antiques but none have chairs with them.
Any advice or thoughts? Just rework the Roorkhee to more a more upright, higher version?
