Make a Greene & Greene Style Side Table with Bob Van Dyke
Greene & Greene style furniture has an appeal because, among other things, it is utterly unique. Seattle furniture maker Darrell Peart, who is a regular instructor at CVSW, wrote: “The houses and furniture designed by architects Charles and Henry Greene demanded skills well beyond those of the average craftsman. While machines were used, many of the Greenes’ designs also required of its makers a high level of hand work.” This side table project features signature Greene & Greene design elements such as "cloud lifts" on the bottom edge of the aprons, bread board ends on the top accented with ebony splines and square pegs, shaped aprons and legs. In your choice of mahogany or cherry, this table will stretch your woodworking skills and will look great in your home. Plan on doing some of the handwork at home (or in the shop by arrangement) as there will not be time to finish the project if you leave all the work for class-time only. Don’t miss this new class. Tuition: $495.00 plus materials.
