Originally published in Stickley's The Craftsman magazine approximately 100 years ago, over 60 plans and illustrations of beautiful and practical Mission-style furniture projects.
Unique to this publication are beautiful color photographs of actual antiqueStickley produced furniture examples of many of the designs outlined. These are included with the gracious permission of Rago Arts and Auction Center of Lambertville, New Jersey.
Additionally included are, 29 extra pages of materials from Craftsman Homes (1909) by Stickley on:
- Furniture making in this Country: Craftsman Furniture in the Evolution of an American Style
- Craftsman Metal Work
- Cabinet Work for Home workers and students
Mission Furniture - How to Make
It - Vol. I, II, III
by H.H. Windsor, 1909-1911.
from the original classic 1909-1911 Popular Mechanics Co.handbooks.
All Three Books, over 200 pages of Arts
& Crafts period furniture plans. Each
plan is clearly described in terms
of components, special steps and recommended
procedures. They also each
have a drawn plan with full dimensions and
sometimes a photo or sketch of the object.
sections include period finishing tips (including fuming) and
also other technique hints; like steam bending, etc.
Also includes 25 additional pages added to later editions of the PART ONE volume.
101 Arts & Crafts Furniture Drawings
Working Drawings for Cabinet Making Models-
Arranged for High School Courses
, by Frank Halstead, 1913.
An amazing high school/trade school text with a rather
dull title, it features no fewer than
101 designs for classic Arts and Crafts era furniture.
The variety and scope of projects are unique and
I have yet to find a
text like it to this date that matches the sheer
number of different designs.
Although often light on details, due to the
format of the plans (which do at minimum have
Front / Side elevation views, and a lumber list)
, they will certainly get your imagination
going as to possible ideas for future projects
to tackle. Scanned at high resolution, and converted
to the easy-to-use Adobe
Acrobat format makes these plans nearly perfect
replicas of the original 1913 book.
Built - In Furniture
by Edwin M. Love, Popular Mechanics Press, 1927.
This book is a terrific find on period
Built-in type furniture,
enable any handy man to add greatly to
the beauty and convenience of his home, at small
198 pages of really unique projects, all fully
illustrated and with very detailed schematic drawings,
isometric views and material lists. The
quality and variety of plans are outstanding and
cover many project designs I've never seen elsewhere.
