Taken from popular woodworking, this is my version of their version of the thorsen house side table. Made from Philippine mahogany with stained Nara pegs and finished with a wipe on poly. Looks a bit complex but really it,s just simple mortise and tenon consrtuction with a bit of jigsaw work. Not really a fan of Greene and Greene but this is one of their simpler pieces so i thought it would be a good one to start with. First order from a gallery in Makati.

I’m not a big fan of greene and greene either, but you’ve recreated it nicely. It’s a tribute to your skills as a woodworker to build what is asked and to have it look authentic. Nicely done and congrats on the commission!

Another finely executed piece.
