Mission Furniture-How To Make It

So for the woodworker here is a large selection of plans for a classic furniture style. Back in 1909 Popular Mechanics Handbooks published a 3 volume set on Mission furniture construction. Written by H.H. Windsor, they were quite popular,and even today, I have seen them reprinted in the retail market. I found these 3 volumes on the Project Gutenberg site in full text and imported them to three word docs. The 3 volumes are each a little less than 100 pages so I combined them into one volume and converted it to pdf. The result 264 pages of Mission furniture plans.

If you like strong functional furniture with clean unadorned lines Mission furniture may be to your taste. Material recommended is mainly quarter sawn oak and gives the style a distinct long lasting look.
