My first attempt at a G&G style piece. It is made out of African mahogany with ebony splines and plugs.

Looks great. Right now I can only hope for such mastery.

Did you take a workshop to refine this skill? Your work is just outstanding for a first attempt at G&G.

BTW, there’s a great article in Fine Woodworking’s current issue. Dearl Peart shows how he makes finger joint corners with a flush trim router bit. It’s worth the price of the magazine.

Thanks, Dale. No formal classes; I owe most my woodworking knowledge to the Wood Whisperer though. He’s done a couple G&G projects that showed how to do most of the required techniques.

Thanks a lot for the beautiful work. Nothing like great inspiration when I have a load of kitchen cabinets to make.

My apologies to Darrell Peart for misspelling his name in my first post of this thread.
