This was my first woodworking project. I made it with pine and stained it with a mahogany stain. I used a Dremel Trio for the majority of wood cuts, and am very glad to have a jig saw now.

Your design is classic Greene and Greene and given that this is your first project I had a feeling that you didn’t know. That’s awesome. You’ve done a wonderful job. Search Greene and Greene furniture and I think you will find it interesting in light of what you have done.

They were brothers, architects and furniture designers of significant fame. The majority of their work is in California and around the 1870’s. They are part of the Arts and Crafts movement. They designed wonderful stuff and remain popular today. Your chair embodies their timeless appeal.

This looks like your chair.

Yes, that actually is a picture of it. I tweaked the design for what I was able to do. I got the plans online. I’ll have to look more into them.

Have your say...
