Local dealer asked me to make a couple Gustov Stickley reproduction pieces. These are right out of Robert Lang’s book Making Craftsman furniture. the plans were from 1903
these are out of ash and were left unfinished by request. They sold in under two weeks and she is
deciding what to do next. Hopefully it will turn into something regular for me..
built exactly to the plans provided from Stickley in his craftsman magazine.
dovetails and mortise and tenons.. my kind of furniture.. hope you enjoy.. papa

Sweet builds. I especially like the over – under drawers, nice fit without a visible rail between them, I like the look.
Thanks for showing.

Thank you all for your kind words.. love these kinds of builds….could make Stickley stuff everyday and be a happy camper.. ..the pulls were a steal, locally we have stores called Ocean State Job lots.. they had mass
pulls and handles for a buck apiece.. I went nuts and bought 80 to 100 pieces of all different pulls.. so I have quite a box of styles to pick from.. can’t beat a deal like that,, I figured eventually I would use all of them…
Thanks again..
I have a big bedroom to walk in closet job I am starting soon, will try to post some pics as it goes.. Papa//
