This is my Greene & Greene inspired Hall Table. It is crafted from cherry with ebony highlights. The table top and lower shelf have breadboard ends to maintain flatness and facilitate seasonal wood movement. I used the 3-screw method. No glue.
The primary joinery is mortise and tenon. All glued and pinned. The only exception are the two drawers. Drawer fronts are joined the sides using G&G oversized finger joint that are left about 1/16” proud. These too are glued and pinned. Drawer sides are joined to the backs with dado and pins. The entire drawer is solid cherry, even the bottom. The bottom is left loose to facilitate wood movement.
No hardware was used on this project (except 10 screws).
There are over 60 pieces of ebony. The ebony was the most tedious. All the pins are 3/8” round, so each of those holes had to be fitted with a square, domed ebony plug.
It is finished with 3 coats of General Arm-R-Seal.
Can’t wait for the cherry to darken.
