Arts and Crafts Dining Set

I just had the pleasure of building this dining set:

My clients recently built a beautifully detailed Arts and Crafts house and asked me to make them some furniture that felt right within the period, but wasn't totally constrained by it. The table and benches are pretty straight forward and show the classic Stickley influence, but the armchairs push tradition a bit (in a good way, I think). 

Here are some closer details of the table:

 Breadboard end. Draw-pegged mortise and tenon joinery holds them in place.

 The table stretcher connects the trestles with a wedged through-tenon.

And here are a few details of the chairs:

 I like these chairs upside down almost as much as right side up.
