Simple, beautiful, and handmade: that’s the philosophy behind the Arts & Crafts style. These magnificently fashioned pieces can be costly to buy--but Wood magazine shows you how to create these elegant chairs, tables, sofas, beds, and other decorative accessories yourself. Here are the magazine’s finest articles on the subject, gathered in one place and abounding with exploded drawings, patterns, plans, and how-to photos. You’ll see how to make the distinctive, sturdy, and visible joinery that defines the Arts & Crafts look; select the right brackets, hardware, and accents; make a quartersawn figure stand out; add the perfect finish; and choose appropriate upholstery.

A Selection of the F&W Book Club.
