Mission Furniture You Can Build
Authentic Techniques and Designs for the Home WoodworkerBook - 1997
The Dramatic rise in Popularity of Mission Furniture has made it increasingly difficult to find. And more often than not, those pieces that are available also have enormous prices attached to them. Making your own Mission-style furniture provides not only a relatively economical way to have Mission furniture in your home, but also the satisfaction of building an authentic replica of a valuable period piece. Throughout the book, explicit photographs and abundant line drawings accompany clear and carefully explained instructions. The opening chapters lay the groundwork for selecting the right wood, assembling the required tools, and understanding the necessary skills for building each of the ten projects that follow. The woodworker with intermediate skills should be able to tackle any of the pieces with confidence and successful results. And the beginning woodworker, by starting with less demanding pieces, can develop valuable skills.
