So here is a project that I completed earlier this year for a client that was about to have their first child. They wanted a piece that could be used as a changing table now, and then be used as a dresser as their child grew up. This was my first Greene & Greene piece and I am pretty happy with it (which rarely happens)

Very nice! I really like the design. The more I see Greene & Greene the more I like their style.

Very nice design and excellent workmanship. I’m surprised Darrelll Peart hasn’t commented on this yet, he may be jealous. Thanks for the post.

I wish I had purchased Darrell’s book before I made this one as I would have used his method for the plugs. In any case, I have it now and will use it on the next G&G piece I undertake.
