Nice! Which Pop Wood issue was it in? I'm interested in making some, if my wife approves (they would go in our bedroom, which already has a QSWO dresser. She says she doesn't like white oak. Maybe I just won't tell her they are oak.

Looks great! I'd be interested too in knowing which issue of Popular Woodworking this is from.

Very nicely done! The QSWO makes an interesting change for G&G.

Right, since a lot/most of it was not QSWO…but I like this, anyway.

Actually, if you go through a lot of their work you'll find they used almost every kind of native wood at one time or another. Walnut, maple, cherry, redwood, cedar. Different woods for different applications. Mahogany at that time was considered easy to work with and this country still had a large supply of mahogany so it wasn't as expensive yet and they used it a lot. But QSWO was commonly used as much as mahogany during the Arts and Crafts era (for it's highly figured grain) and G&G used it along with Stickley, who's work they admired. This isn't a reproduction of an actual G&G piece…..so why not? I really like the way the grain popped on the oak when it was finished. This is a smaller piece so it would have been harder to get that grain showing like this if I had used mahogany for the same piece.

BTW:......I'm still looking for the old magazine copy to find out what issue it was. I will post if I find it. I'm not exactly a master woodworker yet (koff, koff) so I really liked the detailed instructions to work with on this project. If I ever did this project again, I might widen the top a little just for utility….. but as always the aesthetic of G&G work is in the proportions…..and it looks good like this. So changes might be a trade off that I didn't like after I made it.

I still can't find the issue of Woodworker's Journal that I got the plan from (I'm sure it's hidden SOMEWHERE in my garage!) however I did run across the plans for the same project for sale on from Rockler under their Woodworkers' Journal section. $7.95 for their "Greene and Greene Bedside Table" downloadable plans. Pretty sure it's the same plans published in the article I made this one from. (Photos are all the same anyway.)
