  2. Arts and Crafts Library Chair

    This is an arts and crafts style library chair that I designed. My son Caden and I built it as a study chair for his room. It differs from my dining chairs by featuring arched side rails, instead of side slats. The lumber is quartersawn white oak that I buy locally and dry myself. The...

  7. Wedge and Strap Arts and Crafts Dresser

    Here is my interpretation of an arts and crafts 6 drawer dresser.

  9. Arts and Crafts Library Desk - AKA the Bullet Desk

    This is a QSWO library desk I built for my son's room. It is inspired by a Stickley library table, which I scaled down as a small desk. Most of the period A&C desks have a large lower shelf, however I modified the design for more leg room. We found a board with a bullet lodged in it, and...
