Greene and Greene: Masterworks Book
I just read the book Greene and Greene:Masterworks by Bruce Smith to get a better feel for the G&G style details. The book was very good with lots of high-quality color photos of the G&G houses and furniture that still exist.
Based on the photos of the breadboard furniture tops in the book, I’m not going to do the cloud-lift details on the top inboard sides of the breadboard ends of the desk tops. This detail appears to have been added by folks after the Greenes and does not appear on their furniture (at least in the photos that I have seen). Additionally, I am building solid mahogany tops, like the Greenes did, and therefore the straight edge is better for wood movement. I believe that the folks that have made the other detail must all be using mahogany veneer plywood for the top, because otherwise I do not know how they prevent cracking. May be possible, but it is beyond my skill so far.
