Greene & Greene Chest
This was a class I went down to Seattle to take. We worked on this for about 8-9 hours a day for 6 days and then I had another several days to finish when I got home. It was a fun project and I must say that Greene & Greene furniture is probably my favorite.
So There is a lot to building this chest, I'll try to keep it short and descriptive. We started by gluing up the large panels, then we worked on the base. We used and interesting horizontal shaper to cut the large finger joints on the base. The wood straps were done in a series of jigs and routers then a lot of hand sanding. Once the glue was dry on the panels we used a jig that was made by cutting plywood into strips and then gluing them back together with an offset.
I finished it just in time for the annual Artistry in Wood show, and did pretty well won the whole show that year. There were many deserving pieces though it was a good year for the show.
