Build a Greene & Greene style Blanket Chest with Darrell Peart
Over a six-day period, we will be building a Greene & Greene style Blanket Chest. A chest of this size lends itself to a variety of uses other than storing blankets – coffee table – toy chest – hope chest - etc.
By the end of the project you will have expanded your experience with several classic G&G design elements such as making and inserting ebony plugs, bread board ends with ebony spline, proud finger joints as well as Darrell’s interpretation of the “strap detail”.
The finger joints for the case will be machined using a routing template. All parts of the top (lid) will be made from solid wood.
There will be plenty of hand sanding to soften the ends of the fingered joints – so you may want to bring some carver’s tape (finger guard tape) to keep your fingers from getting raw.
This will be an enjoyable week to build a piece of furniture in a relaxed atmosphere and talk about Greene & Greene and woodworking (two of Darrell’s favorite subjects). Sign up today- space is limited and I am sure this class will sell out. Tuition: $795.00 plus materials
