Building Classic Arts & Crafts Furniture

Shop Drawings for 33 Traditional Charles Limbert Projects

By Michael Crow

SKU# GROUP-U1955-U1959

Arts & Crafts style with a surprising twist!

Charles Limbert was one of the leading figures in the Arts & Crafts furniture movement, and also one of the most unique. His beautiful pieces combined curves, splayed sides and negative space with the more common straight lines of Arts & Crafts furniture, producing designs that were highly prized. Both the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park and the Mission Inn in Riverside, California, feature his work. And today, his original pieces bring thousands of dollars at auction.

Now, for the first time, author Michael Crow has carefully detailed 33 of Charles Limbert's finest designs so you can build this beautiful furniture yourself.

Inside this book you'll find:

  • 200 drawings with exploded views, elevations and details for projects to fit every room in your house.
  • A bill of materials and explanatory note for each piece.
  • Advice on wood selection, hardware sources and construction and finishing techniques.
  • A historical overview of Limbert's life and work.

If you're looking for something fresh in Arts & Crafts design, you'll find it--and more--in the Limbert designs here.

The book is insightful, well thought out & nicely laid out. You can see and understand where this design originated. The drawings and fabrication/assembly are straight forward.
