Darrell Peart’s new Greene & Greene book arrives!!
I received Darrell Peart’s new book called "Greene & Greene : Design Elements for the Workshop" yesterday, hot off of the press and signed by Darrell.
Darrell does my favorite interpretation of the Greene & Greene furniture style (see his website at www.furnituremaker.com) and now he offers both the book and his plans on-line for woodworkers.
The book is not a book of Green & Greene woodworking plans (although there are some good drawings in the back of the book), but rather a book of instructions and tips to allow the intermediate or advanced woodworker to build furniture in the style of Greene & Greene. The book provides tips, scale and dimensions for how to make the cloud-lift details, the ebony pegs, the inlet-leg details, etc that define the style of Greene & Greene.
The photos are very good and Darrell provides information on building jigs, etc to make the job easier. If you are building Greene & Greene furniture, don’t go without this book!
Last night I also put the fourth coat of finish on the band saw box. A final sanding and final coat tonight, and then hopefully flocking tomorrow.
