Being new to woodworking, I’ve been reading about the arts and crafts style and sub-styles, but it made me wonder. What are some similarly gifted craftsman style woodworkers from other countries that are highly regarded and admired? I’ve read about Greene & Greene, Stickley, Ellis, F.L. Wright, et al, but who are some similar craftsmen from other countries that are as well regarded?

This craftsman doesn’t really foot the bill for what your looking for,
but I still want to give him a shout out for the quality work he does. He deserves it!

That is an interesting question, the movement was started in England and moved to the US. Whether it spread to other parts of Europe, I can’t say. Rennie Mackintosh from Scotland is another one that I like.

Chris, if you are really serious about A&C from other countries pick up a copy of Arts & Crafts Furniture by Rodel and Binzen. However, it is dramatically from the A&C made by the Stickleys.

1+ Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow style.

And although Charles Limbert was American, his style has lineage in Holland. Particularly the organic cutout shapes that he used strike me as having a Dutch origin, although it was prevalent in Germany as well.
