It is possible to completely furnish a home using the plans outlined in this valuable study of Mission-style furniture. For the Arts and Crafts enthusiast, this book is a treasure. For the carpenter, this book offers a wealth of projects, from small, easy undertakings like plate racks, plant stands, waste-baskets, and benches, to detailed, room-filling bed, roll-top desk, chairs, tables, even a billiard table that converts to a comfy davenport sofa. In all, there are 92 projects illustrated and explained in this reprint of a 1912 classic first published as part of a Popular Mechanics Handbooks series. Additionally, a guide to 40 styles of chairs provides further inspiration.

This is a reprint, this time "colorized" of a book that Algrove Publishing (Lee Valley) did a reprint of several years ago, while the instructions are useful, the language is dated, there are only drawn illustrations (one per project), no photographs and no "step by step" images or instruction.
The pieces span skill levels as long as you have an understanding of construction methods.
However, as a big fan of Arts & Crafts/Mission furniture styles, I found this book both very informative, and worthwhile enough to purchase, with several projects I plan to build.
