Each project includes a perspective view along with elevations, sections & details, plus a materials list.
Here are working shop drawings for 30 pieces of household furniture by Gustav Stickley and his contemporaries the Craftsman movement. Every type of furniture is represented here: chairs, chests of drawers, wall shelves, book cases, sideboards, dining tables, occasional tables, beds, and rockers. These construction drawings present all the information a woodworker needs to reproduce each piece in his own workshop. Each project includes a perspective view along with elevations, sections and details, plus a complete bill of materials. Introductory chapters give basic technical information about choosing wood, layout and construction techniques, and assembly methods, with a special section on finishing.
Craftsman, Mission, Arts & Crafts: these names all conjure the sturdy, straightforward and immensely popular furniture designed by Gustav Stickley and his associates early in the 20th Century. Despite its popularity, until now there has not been a comprehensive book of shop drawings to guide today’s builder. These shop drawings have been taken directly from original Craftsman catalogs, with measurements and details carefully checked against authentic Craftsman antique furniture. This book gives the woodworker the heart of the Craftsman aesthetic in an attractive, practical, and durable format.
