The one book to buy for building your own Stickley pieces

I have a number of books on Stickley; his designs, his history, and project books on how to reproduce the pieces. Of all these books, this is by far the best for anyone looking to recreate their own piece of furniture.

It's not an exhaustive list of all the pieces, but it's a good selection. There's a good graduation in difficulty and complexity too, so any weekend carpenter should be able to start making high quality furniture.

As well as the projects and plans, there are good sections on the history of Stickley, and on the cabinetmaking techniques you'll need to build them. Neither is (of course) a replacement for any number of other books, but both are just about the right level of detail for what you really need to know.

If you're looking to build your first piece of Stickley, this is the book to start with. ( )
