I became inspired to build something from the Greene and Greene Brothers after visiting the Gamble House in Pasadena, CA. There is so much to see and take in there. I had a Bubinga top that was sitting in my garage and some Myrtle that I brought back from Oregon. The challenge with any project is making sure all of the pieces are gonna line up and YES!!! I did it…..if not it becomes either a smaller project or firewood. There were 2 books that I referenced on the Greene Brothers which were very helpful.

Wow. It looks great now, but just think what it will look like in 50 years. It’s going to age beautifully!

That is a wonderful table. I love the richness of the top.
