There’s just something about Mahogany and Greene & Greene!
I built the first of these two night stands back in March and recently finished the second. The first was made just to see if I could do it. Had I only known….I would have made them both at the same time. I saved the plans, jigs, and patterns, but still it was a re-learning exercise. i think the second was harder than the first.
They were both built using Darrell Peart’s plans, along with construction hints and ideas from his book “Greene & Greene : Design Elements for the Workshop”
My Wife is happy with how they turned out. Now it’s on to a similarly styled bed.

Really nice. I hope to make one or two myself in the future. I hope they come out as beautifully as yours have.

That is beautiful. I’d be worried about your wife if you said that she wasn’t happy with how they turned out!

Very, very nicely done with great detail. You’ve obviously been studying Darrell Peart’s book, and it looks like you’ve learned well.

Holy mackerel! The first word that came to mind was ‘stunning’, but I see someone beat me to it.

These are fantastic.

Great job! I’m working on my first piece of G&G right now and I have a whole new level of respect for others that take on the challenge. You did it perfectly.
