Greene And Greene Desk
This desk build evolved from a four to a eight legged design while already in process. The lesson learned; make a scaled model, or be prepared to adapt you build. There is no substitute for a 3 model. Darrel Peart’s Aurora desk became the inspiration. I added other design elements, such as cloud lifts to the stretchers, inlays to the stepped bread board ends, arched sides, and pulls of my own design. The desk was constructed of Sapele, with Ebony, and Sterling Silver for inlays. This desk is featured in the Gallery of Fine WoodWorkings Nov/Dec issue.
I'm not a huge fan of the Greene and Greene style but I really do dig the ebony plugs and the way the joinery is proud. I think that's a great look.
This looks like a very well-built table and I'm sure it will be enjoyed for many generations.
Well done. G&G designs are timeless and this is no exception! Excellent job on the layout and detail positioning.
