Stickley sofa

This started out as a basic Prairie sofa from Robert Lang’s drawings. Decided I wanted the spindle version and invented my own concept. Little did I know what a process that would be. Seeing this piece in my house started me on a pathway of building a lot more like this.

I used some high grace vinyl which cost about $45 a yard. The morris chair used about 2 1/2 yards.

I use tung oil on my pieces for ease of working it. After about 4 or 5 coats, I wet sand it, and give it another 4 coast more or less.

Wow, that’s a lot of mortices and tenons for one project. Looks great. I love Arts and Crafts furniture.
