‘Arts & Crafts Furniture Projects’ 2nd Edition


We’ve just released an updated edition (as both a paperback and a PDF download) of our best-selling “Popular Woodworking’s Arts & Crafts Furniture Projects,” with 17 new step-by-step project builds (42 in all).

And I have a copy to give away, free. To enter the drawing, simply leave a comment below by Friday, Jan. 23. I’ll announce the winner on Monday, Jan. 26.

Inside this 2nd edition of “Arts & Crafts Furniture Projects,” you’ll find nine shelving pieces, eight tables, eight indoor seating pieces (as well as a few meant for the porch or garden), eight storage pieces and nine “other” projects, such as a print stand and two mantel clocks.

Again, all you have to do to enter is leave a comment. I’ll randomly select from among respondents. And, as the winner of our “Practical Woodworker” drawing can attest, you don’t have to live in the United States to win (what shocked me was how quickly he received them in England – that never happens when I place an overseas order!).

    The quality of the documents from your publishers is always exceptional. Glad I didn’t get the first edition since this would likely be beyond my ability to resist temptation.

    I look forward to the new book. This will be a perfect companion to the “Classic Arts and Crafts Furniture” book purchased in December.

    And here I am contemplating a new chair (or two maybe) for my living room… how fortuitous this could be!

    I’ve been looking for some new projects lately. Looks like there are quite a few interesting new pieces in this edition that I wouldn’t mind trying my hand at.

    I did a quick search of my library, then the side table in the living room – then the wife’s desk; nope. Don’t have this one, please enter me!

    I would love to add that book to my small collection of woodworking books. Love the furniture.

  7. crownedjitter

    I have the first edition and built one of my first projects from it. I’d love to see what’s new in this edition.

  8. RunningBear

    Awesome. I love the simple lines and rock solid joinery of Arts and Crafts furniture and I am looking forward to some fresh inspiration. The style also brings back boyhood memories of my Grandmothers house. I would love to add this book to my modest woodworking book collection.

    Have the 1st edition, have made several well received pieces from it, looking forward to the 2nd edition.

    Great timing I am in the middle of building a Arts and Crafts coffee table, and planning other pieces to go with the set. More ideas to work with.
    Hope for luck. Thanks for the chance.

    Thank you, Megan and Popular Woodworking. I’d love to save my money to spend on something else…but if I don’t get the free one, I’ll just buy it anyway! So much for my resolve to spend less this year…

    I admit to not having read the 1st ed., but I found the table of contents above very captivating. Several projects I’ve not seen in other books — the linen press as an example. Plans and projects, for me, are a starting point in final design and making, and I have always liked the form and function of this style. It would be a worthwhile addition to my hands-on library as well.

    I have cherry waiting to become the ‘Arts & Crafts trash can’. It has a fancier name in the book… and it looks far better than the $10 target trash can next to our desk.

    Looks good to me, sign me up! I keep the original incarnation in my go-to section of my library.

    I would love the 2nd edition. Will attending school for joints with hand tools in February. I am collecting a library of Arts and Crafts furniture to build. Our two daughters and wife have expressed their wishes for this style of furniture and have been wanting to construct some pieces. This would be a great addition to my library.
    Thanks in advance.

    Table of contents show that it has many interesting and great projects. Thank you for letting me know about it.

  17. Jim McCoy

    I have the first addition and it is excellent. Can’t wait to get my hands on the second edition. Fingers crossed!

  18. amvolk

    This is very timely as my daughter has “commissioned” an end table for me to build. This would be a great resource for that, and a great addition to the library.
