I love the Greene & Greene styles as well as the Stickley designs. To me, they are both timeless and forever stylish. This is my first attempt at Greene and Greene style. My proportions are not quite what their’s was, but this is mine and i don’t like to plagiarize THAT much!
Its solid walnut with a book matched, bread-board top. Can you see the Grinch in the top? Even the back, not shown is shiplapped, 1/4 solid walnut. The drawers are half-blind DT, made from solid poplar to keep the weight down a bit.
The chest is made 100% with Festool, after milling. Even the finish is Festool’s Surfix Heavy Duty Oil. Im really please with the finish as it needs no buffing once its done. And my experience tells me its a pretty tough finish, above their Light Duty and One-Step oils.
Very sorry about the sideways pictures. Ive tried to fix that many times and just can’t. Im a woodworker, not a picture-computer guy.

great job on that I just did my first g&g table myself and love the style.that top is killer and I like the way you took the g&g elements and made it your own.different aspects of their work can be used in many ways,i notice you went with round plugs instead of the square plugs cant blame you their a lot of time to make.you did a great job on the bread board splines also as you know a lot of work.i gotta give you 5 stars on this one.

Very nice job of personalizing G&G elements in your own design.

Love the inverted colors on the G&G elements. Well done.
