Here are the magazine’s finest articles on the subject, gathered in one place and abounding with exploded drawings, patterns, plans, and how-to photos. You’ll see how to make the distinctive, sturdy, and visible joinery that defines the Arts & Crafts look; select the right brackets, hardware, and accents; make a quartersawn figure stand out; add the perfect finish; and choose appropriate upholstery.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The lush wood and distinctive designs of Arts and Crafts-style furnishings continue to be popular. This book from Wood, geared to more experienced woodworkers, presents a wide array of furnishings and projects. The illustrations and directions are strong; the layout is consistent and includes materials lists, exploded-view designs, and step-by-step instructions. Interestingly, the final project features an Arts and Craft's-style makeover of a sample living room. While not as striking and inspirational as some homages, overall, this is a serviceable and useful book, with something for every room in the house. Recommended for most public libraries with established woodworking collections. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
