  • This is a treasure trove of ideas, with details showing how to bring to life the plans put forward by designers
  • This book shows how to put together what the mind has created on paper - in other words, it shows how, say, a chair created in the mind then drawn on paper, can be physically built and used
Full Description

Having gone through more than seven years of architectural and design studies, Jimmy Doctor found that all those years spent studying architecture and interior design did not give him even a glimpse of what goes into detailing a piece of furniture like a sofa, a chair, or a table. In architectural school, lecturers never taught how a timber-paneled wall should be placed against a masonry wall or how a reception counter should be detailed. After graduating, Doctor and his colleagues struggled to understand how these items could be detailed so that a craftsman or carpenter could put them all together. In turn, one could only learn from older colleagues who in turn had learned from their past experiences. It is apparent that the knowledge Doctor has gained over his long career can and will be of use to future graduates – Interior Detailing has been written to share that knowledge.
