My first G&G style project. The box made from oak with ash lid and wenge. This is the present for my soul mate.

Very neat! I love Greene & Greene design. I have been to the Gamble House in Pasadena last year, it was just amazing.

I designed an entire wall cabinet in the Greene & Greene style, but since I am not very experienced in woodworking yet, I had it built by Ronn Jenks. He did a great job, I really love the outcome. You can see an image here:

A box like this might just be the perfect project for me to practice G&G joinery.

Beautiful piece and very well depicted in the pictures. I have always been a sucker for a well built box… I am definitely really digging this one. Well done….

Nice job on the box. I don’t believe I’ve seen that syle on a box before.

Looks great

That is a great looking box. I hope you don’t mind if I join the crowd and “borrow” your design.
