Traditional American furniture styles have enjoyed an enduring popularity, which makes titles about them ideal choices for most collections. Lang offers measured drawings of 27 examples of Craftsman furniture designed by Gustav Stickley. Because they were created by measuring actual Craftsman antiques, these drawings will prove invaluable to those interested in historical accuracy. Designs for chairs, bookcases, tables, and beds are included, each with a bill of materials and a number of illustrations. A section on woodworking techniques and materials rounds out this title. Moser's work covers over 50 projects, based on the Shaker style, that unlike Lang's are not absolute reproductions but either near facsimiles or Moser's own adaptations. Designs include furnishings of all types, from small household items to major pieces of furniture. In the first half of the text, Moser provides an excellent introduction to the Shaker style and the techniques required to reproduce it. The balance consists of measured drawings of each item. Both titles are excellent; Lang receives the nod if one is interested in historical accuracy, while Moser offers a wider range of projects for woodworkers of all skill levels.
