22 Projects for Every Room in the Homeby Robert W. Lang
Although most people associate the Arts & Crafts design movement primarily with its furniture, Gustave Stickley and his contemporaries also designed and built houses. In fact, the houses they designed included some of the first private houses that we would recognize as modern. Gone are the servants quarters, gone are the Victorian parlor. Instead you find modern spaces for families to live on their own. Stickley designs from the early 20th century for household interiors remain extremely popular to this day, celebrated for their beauty, serenity and sturdiness. Thanks to Robert Lang, a cabinetmaker and draftsman, woodworkers who wish to create or renovate interiors in the Craftsman style now have a comprehensive book of shop drawings to assist them. Shop Drawings for Craftsman Interiors offers perspective views and detailed, fully dimensioned construction drawings for cabinets, moldings and built-ins for every room in the home, including kitchen cabinets; bedroom closets and window seats; casings, baseboard, door and window trim; living room cabinets for home-theatre equipment; staircase detailing and trim; fireplace surrounds and cozy nooks; crown molding, chair rail and picture rail; bookcases and much more. This is not a coffee table book, but rather a true and practical celebration of the Stickley aesthetic for the woodworker who wants to recreate it. Featured projects include a perspective view along with elevations, sections and details. Softcover. 8 � x 11. 223 pages. 200 B & W illustrations.
