Prairie Settle Project, Printed Plan
Kevin Rodel’s prairie settle is a perfect example of the low horizontal lines that characterize Prairie-style Arts and Crafts furniture. The broad low back is well-suited for informal conversations. The generous use of wood around the sides and back opens up many design possibilities for creating a beautiful and functional room divider. Construction uses simple mortise-and-tenon joinery, and the dimensions can be changed easily to fit into different room sizes and furniture groupings. The corbels, which add a decorative flair, are the most complicated part, but they can be made quickly and consistently using Rodel’s technique.
