Revised Printing: Great Book of Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture

NewGBSDCF_500Revised Edition of the “Great Book of Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture” now available

The new compilation of my first, second and fourth books, “Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture”, “More Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture” and “Shop Drawings for Craftsman Inlays & Hardware” is now in stock and signed copies are now available. If you’re a fan of Mission, Arts & Crafts, or Stickley Craftsman style furniture, this new book is a must-have reference for authentic details of the period.

Detailed drawings and cutlists for 57 authentic pieces are included as well as drawings for Harvey Ellis inlays, and Stickley hand-hammered copper hardware. The introductory text from the original books has been updated and includes many new photos of both original Stickley pieces and the author building reproductions.

Please Note: The original, August 2012 printing of this book had issues of print quality that have now been corrected in this second printing. You can read about what happened (and what we did to fix it) in this post.

    • Good catch! I fixed the date above. I’ve been using PayPal to process online payments for 11 years, without any problems on this end. But I realize not everyone feels that way. If you want to order and pay with a personal check, send an e-mail with your address and a note telling me what you want. I’ll send it off along with an invoice, and you can send me a check.

    • We can do that, but I won’t know the actual costs for a few days. Best way to send is by first class international package, cost should be between $13-$16, which increased dramatically at the beginning of this year. Last year, my cost (which I passed on to Canadians) was $6.75.

  3. I have almost all of your books and just ordered this one and I would say that you are my favorite woodworking author. Another author I like is Edward R Turner. He did a really good book on project plans for Japanese lamps. He was going to write a companion book on Arts and Crafts style lamps but never did. I don’t know what happened. I have a book on Arts and Crafts Style lamps but it is not first rate. Wish you would write the book that is needed here. Roger

  4. One more idea for you to chew on: I think a project plan on a selection of pieces from some of the less well known or popular arts and crafts designers would be super cool. For example, Barnsley, Voysey, Rohlfs and others. I really love it that you have the project plan on the Voysey clock and I ordered that DVD. Roger
