There is already too much written about the intriguing Arts & Crafts movement, and by better authors.
I only intend to recap the parts which affect furniture design.
My sources for this quickie A&C history will be:
Mission Furniture you can build by Wagner
WOOD magazine A&C furniture
Pop WW A&C furniture projects
A&C furniture by Howard
In the Craftsman Style by Fine WW
well not sure why my photo isn't working out but here is a link TABLE
Well tonight I added the first coat of shellac to my first real woodworking table. I made a few tables before that were very simple and straight from plans so we will see how this one turns out. Hopefully good since the 8 stitches I received were more expensive then a nice table from a high end furniture store.
Here is a tutorial on the "Swirl" inlay that I use, but with a twist, this time I made a little jig for the table saw.
As you can see it is a small simple sled. I then took the sled and marked a line of what I thought would be a good angle for most pen blanks. I don't know what the exact angle is... I just eye balled it. It is more than 45 degree's of that I'm sure of.
