recently, will and i were working with a client on designs for a new sideboard project, which made me go back and look more carefully at some of the 20 or so sideboards we have made over the past 25 years . since the pictures on my website are quite small, i decided to post some larger larger images to my dorset custom furniture blog. some of the sideboards shown there have detailed construction notes and photos at their corresponding blog links. one of those links is actually my most popular blog post of all time with over 6500 views. there is also a post with detailed steps to make the greene and greene style drawer pulls that are on it. sideboards are some of our favorite projects and we will be starting a new walnut one with glass doors in a week or two.

Lord Have Mercy! They are beautiful. I always appreciate an artist, who works with the wood. Unfortunately there are many furniture makers who work with wood, without giving the medium it’s voice. You clearly use your incredible skills to showcase the wood, which in turn creates stunning and memorable pieces. Thank you for that! I love them all, the way you would love all your children. I can’t even pick my favorite. Gosh they are wonderful!!!!
Thanks for sharing…......

Very, Very nice!. I’ve been contemplating a G&G side board to match the cloud lift furniture I’ve made. I really like yours.

Well done.
