Publisher Comments:

Build Furniture in the Legendary Craftsman Style

For more than 30 years, professional woodworker and author Robert W. Lang has been the go-to source for complete working shop drawings of Arts and Crafts furniture pieces designed by Gustav Stickley and his associates early in the twentieth century. Lang, an expert furniture and cabinet maker and executive editor of Popular Woodworking, measured original Craftsman antiques to create detailed plans and published them in a series of Shop Drawing books. This revised collection offers unabridged plans for 57 classic pieces, compiled from 3 of his previous books: Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture, Shop Drawings for Craftsman Inlays and Hardware, and More Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture.

With full perspective views, elevations, sections, details, and cutting lists for each project, plus additional inlay designs and hardware drawings, this book gives today's woodworkers the heart of the Craftsman aesthetic, along with all the information needed for workshop success.
