I designed & built this Greene & Greene inspired stand for my wife as a Christmas gift. It is made of sapele & ebony. All the joints, except the breadboard top, are mortise & tenon.

Excellent! It’s hard to incorporate so many G~n~G features without looking “overdone” – your piece pulls them all together gracefully! An instant classic!

Excellent take on G&G. Wish my wife liked the style more… maybe if I start off with a smaller piece like this, it’ll grow on her? Thanks for the idea here.

Welcome to LumberJocks! Looking forward to seeing other nice work like this from you.
