I finally completed my challenge and I must say it was enjoyable. I am glad I took this challenge because up until now I knew nothing about Greene & Greene. I wanted this to be and unique piece so I chose to make the leg to appear to bend like the Greene & Greene Thorsen side chairs. By doing this it created a Japanese-style house. I also chose to chip carve on this table but most chip carving is geometric and that wouldn’t go with this arts and crafts so again in keeping with the Japanese-style I chip carved the cherry blossom which is quite frequintly used. This is 22”H. and the top is 15 3/4” X 18”. I used walnut for the bread boards and legs. I used butternut and bleached it before I carved on it for all the light color componets. The pegs are made of Aferican Blackwood. All the joints are mortas and tenons. Enjoy!
