This is a duplicate of a Stickley design that I really like. All of the joinery is pinned mortise & tenon. The hooks are as similar as I could get to original without spending a fortune. They are from Signature Hardware and are a bronze patina. Can’t say enough good things about them. I’ve been using Jeff Jewitt’s recipes for Stickley finishes, but I’ve been diverging some as I gain experience. This is essentially a Fayetteville finish, but I doubled the dye load that Jeff recommends. I’m also using a dark walnut gel stain for the grain. This is what he recommends for Fayetteville, but it’s actually too dark for that Stickley finish.
