Building Classic Arts & Crafts Furniture - Shop Drawings for 33 Traditional Charles Limbert Projects, by Michael Crow

Charles Limbert was one of the leading figures in the world of Arts and Crafts furniture, and also one of the most unique.  His beautiful pieces combined curves, splayed sides and negative space with the more common straight lines of Arts & Crafts furniture, producing pieces that were, and are, highly prized.  Now, for the first time, author Michael Crow has carefully detailed 33 of Charles Limbert's finest designs so that you can build this beautiful furniture yourself.  Inside this book you will find: 200 drawings with exploded views, elevations, and details for projects to fit every room in your house; a bill of materials and explanatory note for each piece; advice on wood selection, hardware sources and construction and finishing techniques; and a historical overview of Limbert's life and work.
