If Greene & Greene Drank Beer

After finishing my last large project, I had some cherry and walnut laying around so why not try a smaller project to keep my skills honed. I’m planning a large Greene and Greene project, so this is a study in G&G elements on a small, useful scale. I tried to incorporate key G&G design elements, and I think it came out pretty well.

The walnut, pillowed plugs cover 1/8” dowels that help pin all of the joinery. All of the pillowing was done with a combination of a router and sanding.

Finish is 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal satin and rubbed out with Behlens Deluxing compound.

Thanks for looking,

Oh man, this really catches my eyes. Looks really great and i like the design and the finished look. Especially the handle gives this project the perfect touch in my thoughts.

Thank you very much for sharing!

Great work, My buddy has been dying for one of these. Can you help me with some dimensions please. It would make it much easier for me to make this over the weekend. Thx for your help.

Hi,

Glad you guys like the G&G tote. I do have a drawing with all dimensions and a full size pattern for the handle. If you would like a pdf of the drawing, send me a private message with your email and I’ll send you a copy.

Well this caught my eye. Nothing like a beer project. The finish looks smooth and your skills seem honed. Well done.

Hi Allen,

The ends and sides overlap the bottom, so there is a lot of long grain to long grain glue joints. Also, the plugs on the bottom edge of the end pieces cover dowels that pin the bottom in place.
