Mission style has withstood the test of time. In homes across America and around the world, Mission furniture creates a look and feel to a home that few others styles can—elegant and homey, all at once. This is a classic book of Mission-style furniture, filled with plans for the do-it-yourselfer and inspiration for architects and designers. Included are chairs, tables, desks, beds, shelves, and other more unusual items like wastepaper baskets, clocks, music stands, and even a porch swing. Each project includes a cutting list and detailed, measured drawings of each furniture piece, as well as the general order of work along with handy finishing tips.
