Popularized during the early twentieth century (and for many, a welcome relief from ornately extravagant Victorian furnishings), Mission-style furniture, with its straight lines and cut-out features, is fashionable again. This volume, one of the best manual art instruction books of the early 1900s, shows woodworkers of all ages and abilities how to create handsome replicas of these sturdy, decorative pieces.
Perfect for beginners, yet challenging enough for experienced builders, the guide includes photographs, precise diagrams, measurements, and complete instructions for making a wide array of domestic accessories—from bread boards, candlesticks, and tabourets, to folding tables, chairs, floor lamps, and writing desks.
An invaluable guide for workshop projects, this volume will be of interest, as well, to miniaturists, collectors, and historians of American style.
