Some time ago I decided to make Greene and Greene dining table. But I had no necessity to make sliding table. The sizes of the top 70”x47”x1 1/2”. Foe the top I used padauk and sapele for the edges. The base making from sapele. I made brass inlay. Decoranive elements on the legs vfking from wenge. For square plugs and splines used ebony. Finishing with Varathane gel stain? oil and beeswax. All detailes I described in my blog http://lumberjocks.com/edward60/blog/87410

Thank you my LJ

Thats a nice looking table Edward!
It has a bit of a japanese look to it
I will have to go do some research on G&G styles.

No chance of your food getting cold with those two Hi Bay mercury vapour lights overhead, what gives are you hatching chickens, or do you have shares in the light Company!!

That Kombi on the widow sill looks good too!

P.S Found the answer already!

In 1893 their parents requested that the sons move to Pasadena, where they had moved a year before. The brothers agreed and, while traveling by train from Boston, they stopped at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago and saw a few examples of Japanese architecture. This experience made a lasting impression on both of them, according to a late-in-life interview with Henry. There was actually very little Japanese influence upon their work until after Charles visited the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis.

You nailed it. There is nothing more sexy than a well executed Greene and Greene piece. It just exudes craftsmanship and style. I hope you have family to leave this treasure to so it will be appreciated for years and years to come. BEAUTIFUL!! Thanks for sharing.

I have recently become a big fan of Greene & Greene and I think your interpretation is spot on. I have yet to make any G&G pieces, but it is in the plans. Your table is definitely a family heirloom. Thank you for sharing.

Have your say...
