I actually finished this a couple of years ago. It completes a dining room set of table and 6 chairs I made previously.
It’s QS white oak. Fumed and rubbed with a pure tung oil. Finished with a wipe-on poly for extra protection.
So far I have worked almost exclusively in the “Stickley” style due to the wealth of good information out there—and I like the joinery.
My current project is a Darrell Peart-designed ‘Aurora’ side table. It’s been a lot of fun.

Dude! Unbelievably nice. Please post your other projects.

I’ll be building the three-drawer Stickley #818 to go along with the dining room set still in progress. I’ve also started on the Aurora table.

Love your stuff, especially since you’re fuming too. Where did you get the plans for the buffet?

What a wonderful piece. I’m becoming more of a fan of this style every day & it’s work like this that helps me along that path. -SST

Very well done. Do you have a Stickley number for this piece or is it your own design. What are the dimensions. Could you post some photos of the dining room set?

Thanks, CaptainSkully.
I got the ‘plans’ by going furniture shopping with a tape measure and a notepad. The Stickley catalog has overall dimensions, however, I believe in putting my own modifications to it. Although in this case, the modifications are minor. Their catalog number is #711.

As a fan of arts and crafts furniture I have to say this is really very nice. Excellent job, very nice attention to detail from what I can see. How did you make the legs? Are they quartersawn on all four sides?? :) Just curious as to what technique you used to make the legs like Stickley.
