  1. Green and Green nightstands

    inspired by the G&G cloud-lift design, I made these from a plan in a woodworking magazine a few years ago. Unfortunately, the dimensions were incorrect so it took much longer than i had planned because I cut all my wood according to the plan. It's made out of hickory, Jatoba and cherry.
  2. Green and Green inspired end tables

    These Green and Green inspired end tables are made from Cherry and Hickory with masaranduba pegs. The top has a piece of Marble inset.
  3. alder closet storage cabinet - Green and Green doors

    This cabinet was made for our walk-in closet. It's made with melamine and has alder banding. The doors are made of alder and hickory. The doors were inspired by G&G's cloud lift design. It has 6 deep, full extension drawers and adjustable shelves. I should have taken a picture before it was...
  4. Full Length Mirror

    This summer I completed this full length walnut tilting mirror for my wife Tamara. This was supposed to be a birthday gift, but you know how that goes (her birthday is in March). For the frame and base I used some figured walnut and use some scraps of wenge with threaded brass for the...
  5. Belly up to the bar (Maloof inspired Bar Stools)

    Hello fellow LJ'ers. Just delivered these three bar stools to a semi-local customer. A custom detail was added (note the Cloud Lift on the lower stretchers). The client was very happy, and the celebratory drinks were flowing freely. At the risk of a self-indulgent plug, if you would like to...
  6. Green and Green inspired bifold doors

    We're outfitting our summer home with a Green and Green's cloud lift design theme. This is the latest project made of Alder rails and Stiles and hickory panels. The pegs are Ebony stained Massaranduba. Have you ever had "one of those projects" where nothing went right. This project, while...
  7. First commision, floating desk, reclaimed lumber

    I was contacted a few weeks ago, by my friend, the creative director at our church, who asked me if I would want to build him a desk. This is the first time I have been commissioned to build furniture, I was/am stoked on it. The lumber for the top cam from the walls in our basement that used...
  8. Bell Mount #2

    This is my 2nd bell mount. I used recycled Douglas Fir from an old house door. that I posted about a year ago. The finish is lacquer base sanding sealer with two coats of lacquer. The bell is 6" R X 5" H. The stand is 12 1/2" w X 13H X 6.5 D The last one I made was a gift for our son in law...
  9. Modified Greene and Greene Bookshelf

    A modified Greene and Greene - themed bookshelf. I like the G&G style a lot-the workload not so much. I think people, when getting on their G&G kick, often forget that these things were made by these incredible craftsmen for people who were stinking rich. And as such, even the smallest pieces...
  10. Green & Greene inspired Magazine Rack / Small Bookshelf

    I have a blog series (it's very long winded, you have been warned) on building this from the initial design to the final stages. I consider this "my own" design given that I did design it, but most of the details are obviously directly inspired by various G&G pieces. It's made from Peruvian...
  11. G&G inspired Headboard and footboard - walnut & ebony & leaded glass

    This bed was inspired by G&G cloud-lift design. I struggled with the design and got some good feedback from LJ's. Sorry the pics didn't come out well. It's made with walnut, ebony and leaded glass. The leaded glass matches the entrance door to the bedroom at a cabin. It's finished with...
  12. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Hi gang As I was cutting some wood on the table saw today the thought came to me that what I was doing is not something I would recommend to my woodworking students. My father's words came back to me "do as I say not as I do". Because I'm a 30 year woodworker my experience allows me to do...

    Greene & Greene Detail on Legs Here is a shot of the finished detail on the legs, ready for final planing and refinement. I'll do that after the mortises are cut for the stretchers. I changed things up a bit and decided to taper the inside of the legs at the front and back but left the...
  14. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm making my wife some greene and greene inspired planters for Mother's day. The planter will be six inches tall and I'm wondering how large I should make each 'lift'. I should add that the box will only be two feet wide. I was thinking that 3/4" would be enough but does anyone know if Greene...
