Clean lines and honest joinery draw woodworkers to the Arts and Crafts style. Browse our collection of projects and accompanying videos below.

When it's time to apply a finish, there are a variety of options: fuming with ammonia, Nancy Hiller’s five-step formula, or Jeff Jewitt’s recipe using pigment stains and dyes. For general information on the style, read Quintessential Arts and Crafts.
