Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A mission chair for the dining room, a very comfortable and attractive porch chair, a well-proportioned mission library table, a beautiful roll top desk, a handsome settee, a mission sideboard—the projects go on and on, up to nearly 100 of the finest, most desirable pieces of mission furniture that you could ever want to make. Each project features accurate measured drawings and an illustration of the completed piece, while all the instructions have been prepared by experts and written in a clearly understandable style. In addition, all of the furniture is authentic Mission, actually built during the years around 1910 when this classic how-to manual was first published.

If the projects listed above are not exactly what you had in mind, you might want to choose from projects such as these: Morris chair; writing desk; bedstead; lawn swing; couch with cushions; wardrobe; dresser; China closet; serving table; hall clock; bookcase; chafing-dish buffet; rocking chair; extension dining table; and leather back arm chair.

Or start off with one of these unusual smaller pieces: lamp stand and shade; mission candlestick; mission shaving stand; mission waste-paper basket; mission plant stand; plate rack; leather-covered footstool; arts-crafts mantel clock; wall case with mirror door; arts and crafts oil lamp; medicine cabinet; sewing box; umbrella stand; wall shelf; mission bookrack; and foot warmer.

This inexhaustible selection is one that all woodworkers will want to have. The projects are worthwhile and often challenging, and there are even special sections explaining some of the techniques used to make Mission furniture—staining oak, marking dowel holes, bending wood, and cutting tenons. Antique collectors and historians of American style will also welcome this edition, and miniaturists will find the measured drawings invaluable.

Synopsis:

Nearly 100 of the most desirable pieces of Mission furniture that you could ever want to make: chairs, desks, sideboards, buffets, and many smaller pieces. 213 illustrations, including measured drawings.
