Interior Detailing : In Contract Works
By (author) F. Jimmy Doctor
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 past their experiences. It is apparent to see that the knowledge Jimmy Doctor has gained over his long career can and will be of use to future graduates--this, Interior Detailing, book has been written to share that knowledge.
