Mackintosh FurnitureThanks for all the great comments! Congratulations to “willcee” the winner of this book giveaway. Stay tuned for more exciting book giveaways and if you’re interested in reserving a copy of “Mackintosh Furniture” you can pre-order at ShopWoodworking.com.

This week I received advance copies of Michael Crow’s new “Mackintosh Furniture” book. Its a book of techniques and shop drawings to help you recreate 30 of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s furniture designs.

Often remembered for his architecture and graphics, Mackintosh designed hundreds of pieces of furniture throughout his career. This is the first book of its kind dedicated solely to his furniture. Finally fans of Mackintosh’s work will have access to drawings and details to help recreate some of his most popular furniture.

“Mackintosh Furniture” will be available in December and is currently available for pre-order at ShopWoodworking.com.

I have one advance copy of the book from the printer that I’m giving away. Be the first kid on the block to own a copy of this one! Simply post a comment below and I’ll choose one winner at random. Winner will be announced Monday 10/2/17. Good luck!

Mid-Century Modern FurnitureAlso available from Michael Crow: “Mid-Century Modern Furniture: Shop Drawings & Techniques for Making 29 Projects.”

    That’s a gorgeous piece. If you stumble across another copy, maybe offer a bundle with Michael’s Arts & Crafts book, or perhaps some of Bob Lang’s books of shop drawings.

  • PapaBear302

    Who can’t use another design book. Especially if is free.

  • wonkothesane

    I understand that there can be only one winner.

    But speaking of the whole “there can be only one thing” it turns out there were a whole bunch of Highlander movies. There should have been only one (movie that is), and there should have been only none (TV shows), but all in all, if we had to ignore a decade of detritus after the first Highlander, then it was s small price to pay for such lines as “it is THE QUICKENING!”

    Additionally, it seems there will be only one winner of this new book, which is fine I suppose. But what method are y’all using to determine these winners? Random Number Generator? Put an Editor in a Closet with a bag of Oreos and however many seconds it takes them to finish them equates to the hypotenuse of the number of the new book owner? Coin flipping, except with fire?

    And another thing! Except, I ran out of things to say at least four paragraphs ago. Anyway, please enter me in the roster for the Duel to the Distraction for a nice book of drawings and furniture.

  • galooticus

    Looking forward to this one!

  • RP

    Love it! Even just the cover project – that is amazing!
