This is the Greene and Greene Dresser I just finished for a customer of mine and is built from Sapele and Ebony. This piece was base on my Greene and Greene Hall Table design. The whole piece is solid wood and all of the lumber was book matched all the way down to the bottoms of the drawers matching up!

Thanks for looking!

Jaw dropping.
Incredible.

That is remarkable, holy crap. The wood is beautiful, and must have cost a fortune. Do you buy from a local mill/dealer? The ebony plugs look great, and your attention to detail is fantastic.

Brian,

Haven’t seen your work in awhile. You have upped your game and your raising the bar for others.

What finish did you use on this piece?

Man that is a beautiful G&G dresser! I love the ribboning in the sapele, and you got all the details just right! And I gotta say, never seen solid wood drawer bottoms—very impressive!

Very impressive work! I hope that you got a pretty penny for this! Must have taken you quite a while, but your artistry really shines through!
