A tsuba is a Japanese sword guard – Charles Greene had a collection of tsubas and incorporated their shape in many of his designs. This table is my design using a modified tsuba shape for the top. The slide system is a very basic “beveled edge” system I found in “The Encyclopedia of Furniture Making” by Earnest Joyce.
Woods used are African Mahogany with Gabon Ebony details.

Stunning!

I’m amazed at how much Japanese influence is in the G2 designs.

Very beautiful, and inspirational work-especially for us amateurs!
Now that I know where you’re located, I’ll make a point of visiting your shop the next time I’m in town visting my daughter in Kirkland.
Looking forward to the opportunity to attend one of your classes, time permitting.

Very very Nice! I love your attention to detail. I can’t believe I missed your other projects .
I’m going to go look up your book (Maybe santa will give it to me for Christmas) ......I just went to your website and it sure is one classy site I’m going to have my wife order a book and I would love it if you could sign it for me she will give you the details when she contacts you.

A collectors piece indeed superb craftsmanship !!
