Copper hardware doesn't have to come from a catalog—you can make it yourself! Most of the things you'll need are already in your shop, and once you're familiar with the techniques, you'll be able to make all the hardware for the AW Stickley-Style Sideboard project (also available from awbookstore.com), or just about any other Mission or Arts and Crafts style piece of furniture. Need a bigger push? According to Gustav Stickley himself, "...metal work is one of the most interesting of the crafts to the home worker … and anyone who takes it up and discovers its possibilities is likely to go on with it indefinitely."
