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.

Very nice, rodneyh.

The wood, the finish, and the styling all seem historically accurate.
I haven’t had as much luck with Jeff Jewitt’s methods as you have, so I just stick to a fuming tent and some oil.

Keep up the good work.

Really nice job. Did you build this from plans or measure one up? I’ve wanted to build one for a while, but can’t find plans or a mirror to measure. If you have plans where did you get them? Thanks.

Mike – The mirror is Stickley No. 67 from their 1912 catalog. In that, they give the overall dimensions as well as dimensions of the 3 mirrors. For the rest of the dimensions, I downloaded an image of the mirror from somewhere online and opened it up in MS Paint. In Paint, it’s pretty easy to calculate all of the other dimensions by using the known dimensions from the catalog. I also use a book titled “The Furniture of Gustav Stickley”. In that book, they have the Stickley No. 66 mirror (but without hooks) which is similar, and it has detailed plans. Hope that helps.
