Description

Originating over a century ago, the Arts & Crafts design movement continues to inspire furniture pieces that incorporate the clean lines and understated ornamentation that are characteristic of the style.

This book offers in-depth guidance for those who want to create Arts & Crafts furniture that is faithful to its roots, but made using modern tools and workshop methods.

Presented as a series of nine skill-building projects, it begins with a simple Stickley-style frame, followed by more challenging pieces, including a bow-arm Morris chair, a spindle bed, a round-topped tabouret and others.

The book covers construction details such as mortise-and-tenon joinery, tusk tenons and rabbet joints, as well as design elements, from the use of quartersawn lumber to “cloud-lift” decorative motifs. A final chapter explains how to closely match traditional finishes using materials that are readily available today.

Softcover, 8 1/2" × 11", 170 pages, 2015.
