Quartersawn oak with mahogany accents and inlays at the top. Through tenons on the sides except for the bottom compartment, which has faux tenons. It was made to hold books, remotes, mail, computer supplies and decorative items. It fits above my oak desk and chair so it’s convenient. I had finished the cabinet a few months ago but finally decided on and finished the design of the two doors. Stain, seal coat, glaze and then lacquer finish.

-- Style is simple, but not my execution of it.

I’ve always liked the Greene and Greene style, but have been reluctant to take on a project. I’m taking a class with Dale Barnard in Paoli, IN later next month, and his specialty is this style, unfortunately I can only do a steam bending class. Great work!

Nice job of interpreting the G&G style into a cabinet that fits YOUR needs.
Very nice, thanks for posting it.
