I started with, Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture, by Robert W. Lang using Gustav Stickley #353 side chair and #622 trestle table as the basis for design and dimensions. For the Greene and Greene influences Darrell Peart book, Greene and Greene Design Elements for the workshop, was the source the cloud lift and leg indents and construction details. I then made plans and patterns were needed. Both books are excellent resources. By the way this was a gift to a good friend of the family who needed a table and chairs and when I delivered it I was surprise that their house was a Craftsman style and it fit in well. There will be future table and chair for my wife.

Really nice work and what an incredible gift! If I may ask, how long did it take to build all of those pieces? I get inspired when I see beautiful furniture sets like this one you’ve made, but with my intermediate-at-best skill level and a teeny tiny shop, I worry that I’d have a one foot in the grave by the time I finished!

I started making sketches in late February and I did purchase a Rikon mortiser which help considerably. I have doubts with every project especially when its time to do finishing. I pre-finished the parts which helped and I will do more of that in the future. I consider myself a self taught intermediate also with a lot to learn. It is a great hobby.
