The "Linen Press" is a form of storage furniture that developed in the 1600's. Although we would be unlikely to use it this way now, it has such fine proportions and graceful detailing that it can become a fine home center for TV, stereo, VCR, etc. The plan actually suggests ways to adapt it to TV use. Height 77". Width 38". Depth 19".

The late Carlyle Lynch (1909-1989) was an inspired teacher of woodwork, drafting, and metalwork. He was a furniture maker and author with a lifelong passion for classic American furniture. Lynch took it upon himself to measure outstanding pieces of 18th and 19th century American furniture and to create detailed drawings so that the furniture could be reproduced by woodworkers who shared his passion. The furniture items for which Lynch prepared drawings read like greatest hits of American furniture: Four-poster bed; Windsor chair; Queen Anne table and many other great pieces.

Each set of Carlyle Lynch measured drawings is accompanied by a detailed parts list with measurements, a list of hardware, and notes detailing any extra information that might be required, such as certain construction details.

  • Great Project - yields a nice piece of furniture

    Bob Taylor, 10/26/2019 I built a slightly modified replica of this piece back when Carlyle was still alive but in his later years. Where the bottom two panels of the top doors are, I removed them to create an open space (putting a finished top on the bottom piece). I then set the top piece depth back by a couple inches to make a kitchen or family room 'hutch'. All the rest was constructed exactly to Carlyle's drawings and plans.
    It is not a 'beginners' skill project but with moderate to advanced skills this will yield several nice woodworking challenges for you to adapt some of its construction to modern tool machinery use, yet it will still require some hand tool use for the traditionalist. I built two of these actually, one of pine as a prototype to evaluate the minor adaptations I made, followed with one of red-oak dyed with golden-oak aniline dye). Now in my old age, these are the two most coveted pieces I've built. The pine resides at my summer home, the oak at my residence.

    Robert Jerman, 7/29/2016 really interesting piece, made that much more unique with the arched raised panel doors. For an older home great storage, and just a handsome design. The drawings are beautifully done.
