To date I count 16 SAPFM members that have requested information on Townsend's design method.

I would appreciate feedback either positive or negative.

Also, if you are interested I encourage you to request steps 2 & 3.

Step 2 gives the method Townsend used when the base molding resulted in 1/32 increments.

Step 3 gives the method Townsend used on the slant top desk.  It also expands to show how he designed high boys, secretaries, tables, etc   This will expand your capabilities in designing your own furniture.

Both steps will expand your capability to build Townsend  pieces

Thanks again for your interest.
