I have always considered building the Blacker Living room armchair to be a sort of rite of passage for G&G furniture makers – but I have yet to make one!! Although I have made every variation of the Blacker chair I can think of – this settee being one of those variations.
The Greene’s did not produce a Blacker Settee – but I was not the first to make a Settee version – that honor goes to “Tom Gallenberg.”

You’ve got something to sit in for every room of the house. This is a great looking version.

Darrel,

Beautifully done! It’s what we’ve come to expect from your shop.

I have plans (in my head) to build a G&G style of ‘exoskeleton’ clock – not something that the G brothers did, but in their wonderful arts-n-craft style. I’ll forwarf pictures when I get the piece done.

Thanks for posting. Look forward to your newsletters. Max

Very nice G&G version of an armchair. You are very good. The photography is exceptional also.
