“Classic Arts & Crafts Furniture: 14 Timeless Designs” is a collection of project articles from Popular Woodworking Magazine, built by Robert W. Lang between 2004 and 2013. The entire book is a fresh design, and the many of the original articles have additional photos and text that appeared on the Popular Woodworking Editor’s Blog. Most of the images are larger than the magazine images. All in all, this is a great looking book, full of down to earth techniques for building and finishing Arts & Crafts style furniture.
Here is a list of the projects, and the ones that are underlined are links to posts about that particular piece:
