Greene & Greene Details with Darrell Peart
With more G&G details in your bag of tricks you will be better prepared to tackle Greene and Greene projects. This class will further explore and expand your Greene and Greene vocabulary. In this class we will make ,among other things, two drawer pulls that fit perfectly with Greene & Greene designs. The first- Blacker Triple Bar Pull will feather a router jig which each student will take home for routing the bar cavities. The other- the dowel and block pull is actually a James Krenov design.
We will also be using the tablesaw with the dado blade to produce tight fitting and distinctive finger joints using a method that allows you to easily produce accurate tight joints without having to change setups for different size drawers. Darrell will also go into the making of Base Straps which were used by Greene & Greene on the Ford Living Room Letter Case. It's a great detail for adding visual weight to a piece. We will also be getting into the making of the signature G & G ebony plugs which are so important to this style of furniture.
