« Part 15: Walnut, elm, and cork coaster set Part 16 of Blogging instead of Woodworking series Part 17: Calling all red oak haters »

I’ve just started a big furniture build, both a sofa and loveseat. The shop is going to get crowded. I’ve started a build series on it on my blog. This time, I get to start with the tree the lumber came from, sustainably, urban-ly harvested from the U of Chicago campus!

Douglas, I recently completed a Stickley #220 and it was a thoroughly enjoyable project. I am still waiting for the upholsterer to complete it, but that should happen in the next month or so. Should you have any questions, I will try my best to assist. If you decide to use fabric, LOML found a beautiful print at a furniture store that carries Stickley-Audi furniture so it may be worth a look for you. Have fun with this project!
