As part of my commitment to share my work more, here is a console table I finished in early April. After browsing Stickley’s site, I became inspired to produce some Arts & Crafts style furniture for our entry way & living room. I really like the lines of this mission style furniture, particularly the use of QSWO. Construction mainly consisted of floating tenons, the drawer construction is dovetailed soft maple. I ended up using side mount drawer slides and wish I would’ve just used some light duty under mounts instead; I was concerned about losing drawer depth. The finish on this piece (as well as the clock) was achieved by following Jeff Jewitt’s mission oak finish technique. It’s a multi step process that takes some time but its all worth it in the end I think. I went back and forth on different drawer pulls but ultimately went with authentic Stickley hardware that was purchased through Rockler, while not cheap, I thought it only made sense to go authentic. Thanks for viewing.

Beautiful work. How do you have the lower shelf mounted?

WOW! Gustav is most definitely smiling down on you. At first I thought it was an original. Kudos!

Awesome! This is right in my wheelhouse. We’re getting ready to move into our new house and these are the first batch of projects I’m going to be cranking out from my new shop. Thanks for the inspiration and a great example of Jeff’s finish. I’ll probably give that a try.

Here's the link to the Stickley online catalog just to compare. Yours is much better for many reasons.

Awesome all the way around, wood, design, and execution.

I recently made an A&C desk for LOML, ended up making it in Cherry because I couldn’t source any decent QS Oak. I’m less than 60 miles from the largest producer of QS Oak in America, probably the world (Frank Miller Lumber) and they are selling it off to Asia as fast as they get it ready to sell. This is a first time I couldn’t find any nice QS Oak ever.

I really like A&C furniture and you did an incredible job on these pieces. I’ll have to look up the technique you mentioned for the finish, it’s beautiful. I usually fume my pieces and I’d like to see if there is a way that suits me better.

Very familiar with that page! I used that same link to design mine. Many thanks!

Wow, thats sad to hear. I’ve been fortunate to hand pick these boards but the pickens are getting slimmer for sure. Cherry is a nice substitute for A&C though.

It’s my favorite style, at the moment anyways. Definitely check out Jeff’s technique. It’s a fantastic way to get similar results to fuming. You have to dedicate about a week to the finishing process though.

Thank you everyone for the kind words. I just finished a matching coffee table that Ill be sharing soon as well.
