A few weeks ago, I studied a Greene & Greene fireplace mantle being shown by a Boston museum. I became interested in the background of the two California architects and the furniture and homes they built. A tribute to these brothers can be seen on new video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hEIpNfSnX8

-- Thanks to the Wood Spirit, Tom

Hi Tom
I thoroughly enjoyed your Greene and Greene Video it was very well done and most informative. The only suggestion I might offer is if it could run a little slower. I guess the speed that it is set at has to do with what will fit in the time restrictions that You Tube imposes. thank you so very much for sharing this wonderful tribute. I see you have more videos on you tube I can’t wait to view them also .

Interesting, factual, well-paced and easy to read-along.

Many thanks for your contribution.

FWIW: The Greene brothers were born about 40 miles from my studio.

Blessings,
Bro. Tenzin
