After my last Greene and Greene project (Arched Aurora Tables) I wanted to try my hand at designing something of my own in the G&G style. And I wanted it to be small and simple in case I screwed up so it would cost me a fortune in wasted wood. This was partially inspired by a mirror frame at my local beer store which had the curved sides like this but was not G&G. Made from Kiah with Ebony plugs. Finished with wipe on Poly.
Big thanks to Darrell Peart for teaching me nearly everything I know about G&G techniques and methods through his book and magazine articles.

Great work, I love to see other woodworkers take on what I feel are some of history’s greatest designs.
