I have always been fascinated by Gustav Stickley's furniture designs, frequently called Mission Style. Stickley used glue-less joinery and preferred quarter-sawn Oak. This resulted in long-lasting furniture even under extreme environmental conditions since there was no climate control to speak off more than a hundred years ago.
However, nowadays, we have modern adhesives and wood finishes and live air-conditioned. So I extend my apologies to Gustav and humbly call my designs Stickley knockoffs.
