Mission Design is characterized by straight, thick, horizontal and vertical lines and flat panels. The most common material used in Mission furniture is oak. Hardware is often visible on the outside of the pieces and made of black iron. It is a style that became popular in the early 20th century. In following years, designers begin to blend the orginal Mission style with Arts and Crafts.

The Arts and Crafts movement is an American domestic style popular from the last years of the 19th century through the early years of the 20th century. The style incorporated locally handcrafted wood, glass, and metal work that is both simple and elegant. A reaction to the increasingly common mass-produced elements, the style incorporated clean lines, repeating designs, vertical and elongated forms, and natural materials. In order to express the beauty inherent in craft, some products were deliberately left slightly unfinished, resulting in a certain rustic and robust effect.

Please note that all of these plans are vintage plans and were written long ago.  Long ago before power tools existed and before workshop safety was a concern.  We are not responsible for errors in plans or text so please read through each plan carefully before you build.  Our wish is that these vintage plans will be helpful in building some new furniture for your home. Always follow manufacturer's operating instructions in the use of tools.  Check and observe all standard safety precautions.
