Yet that is not its only appeal. Hordes of collectors, beginning in the 1970s, snatched up every signed and nonsigned period piece at auctions, flea markets, and antique stores. So, with ever-escalating prices, what is an admirer to do? Obviously, the editors of Popular Woodwork ing are convinced that any crafter, even those with minimal skills, can successfully complete one of the 20-odd projects. Introduced by historical notes and excellent instructions on mortise and tenon construction (square pegs fitting into square holes) , each of the patterns, from a Morris chair to a Greene & Greene patio table, includes encouraging details such as plenty of pictures and text as well as information about saving money on lumber and aging steel hardware with gun blue, among other topics.
