I’ve become interested in the design elements of Greene & Greene of California fame. I made three memory boxes for some of the grandchildren each applying different elements for practice. The first is spalted apple and uses the proud pillowed finger joint. The second is maple with the top and bottom being breadboard ends with walnut pegs and splines. The third is walnut with the front including a cloud lift that I extended into the top. It also includes my first attempt at inlay, which is nothing like G&G’s wonderful inlays. Hopefully with the obvious differnces between boxes and each child’s initial carved on front (my first letter carving) there won’t be any fighting over whose is whose.
