The book tries to define types of furniture, giving them strict names. However in medieval times furniture names were not strict at all, so the book misses a point here. There are nice medieval furniture examples shown in the book though.

  • Diehl, D. 1997. Constructing medieval furniture – plans and instructions with historical notes. Stackpole Books. ISBN 978-0811727952. Do not take everything literally in this book, including the construction and measurements; he does not show his finished pieces… It does however give you a good idea of what a certain type of furniture looks from all sides.
  • Diehl, D. and M. Donnelly. 1999. Medieval furniture. Plans and instructions for historical reproductions. Strackpole books, Mechanicsburg, USA. ISBN 0-8117-2854-4. As with the previous book: take care and draw your own plans for construction.
  • Dominici, Tamara, 2020. A firepan on wheels: The mobile brazier in Flanders and Brabant in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Oud Holland – Journal for Art of the Low Countries 133(1), pages 1-9.

  • Dunkel, Heinz. 1995. Mittelalterliche Schränke in den Lüneburger Frauenklöstern. PhD thesis Köln University, Köln, Germany. The thesis is about 55 medieval cupboards in the Luneburger convents. Good drawings of the cupboards, but sadly also some missed opportunities by the author, such as no mention of the number of shelves in each cupboard (you can guess by looking at the position of the nails) or measurements of thicknesses of the wood used (like in the volume on chests by von Stulpnagel). I also missed the cupboard with a drawer on one side at Kloster Medingen (situated directly left after passing the entrance door when you visit the convent). Further the typewriter font and lack of photos is outdated for a publication of 1995.

Medieval shrines are rarely covered in medieval furniture books, though it forms an essential part of the joiner (or schreiner = shrine-maker).
