This is my latest project, a G & G style hall tree. It’s actually a prototype made out of cherry and ebony that for some reason I can’t stop making changes to. I call it a prototype because, though I only make things for me and my family at the present moment I would love to make things to sell. As with most of my pieces they usually start out with “dad/hun could you make me”, this piece being no exception.On this piece, as I said it’s made out of cherry and cherry crotch, as well as some ebony thrown in.The ebony coat hooks are a work in progress, I would like them to be a little thinner, but as with all my pieces we use them everyday and i’m not sure if the kids will break them off hurrying out the door.Other things I may change are to shorten the through tenons, and inlay the ebony umbrella openings. If anybody has ideas i’m all ears.
