'Arts & Crafts Furniture,' 2nd Edition (Enter to Win a Copy!)

‘Arts & Crafts Furniture Projects’ 2nd Edition

 In Shop Blog, Woodworking Blogs


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.

Click on the table of contents image  to enlarge it and read a list of all 42 projects – including Gustav Stickley bookshelves, chairs and tables, a Byrdcliffe linen press, a Greene & Greene medicine cabinet and sideboard and much more.

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.

  • rtaylor24

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

  • Derrick

    Perfect. I love this style of furniture.

    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!

  • Alsatian

    I milled my neighbor’s oak into 1000 bd ft and all I have to show for it so far is this bookcase. https://flic.kr/s/aHsjXcx7PD I need more ideas.

    Great looking book. If I don’t win I will most likely buy it myself 🙂

    I would love a copy of this book. It is my favorite furniture style.

  • 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.

  • bearswood

    I could use this book to continue my chairmaking advanture.

  • CharlesHart

    Just send it to me now!

  • 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.

  • Mike799

    I would love to have a copy. I see many projects I would like to make.

  • Michael Kratky

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

  • Dave in Ohio

    Throw my hat in the ring!

  • Bear

    Sounds like a great reference…. Thanks

  • adifrot

    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.

  • dknott

    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…

  • Tom8021

    I would love to have this too.

  • GG44

    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.

  • jssussex@gmail.com

    I have the first edition. Love it and have made variations/modification to the projects to meet our unique taste and needs. Jim from Heritage Carving and Woodworking https://www.facebook.com/HeritageCarving

  • gdblake

    Craftsman furniture and houses have a warmth that goes beyond other styles. Craftsman was a lifestyle movement back in the day. Your can read their archived magazines at http://digicoll.library.wisc.edu/cgi-bin/DLDecArts/DLDecArts-idx?type=browse&scope=DLDECARTS.HOMEDESIGN

  • Pleasanton

    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.
