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. A well-planned and well-executed crafts book. " (566)

A law-abiding, deeply religious and pacifist people, they travelled from Pennsylvania by wagon and foot to settle in the Niagara area around Kitchener-Waterloo and in York County north of Toronto. To Canada the Mennonites brought a long rural tradition of architecture, furniture-making and folk art. These ideas inspired the houses and farms they built, . And the production of a great variety of furniture, in a style rooted in Germany and Pennsyvania and modified with the Ontario experience. Authors Musson and Nykor concentrate on the furniture of the York County area, and draw parallels and contrasts with the predominant styles in other Ontario communities. Also discussed are the homes, farms and churches of the Mennonite community. These too are distinctive in style while unmistakeably part of the larger nineteenth-century Ontario tradition" (400) ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
