Here is a Greene and Greene inspired serving serving tray I finished over the weekend. I’ve been working on a G&G table and I wanted a smaller project to practice on.

The wood is Cherry and Walnut. The plugs are ebonized Walnut.

EDIT: I should have mentioned that I used India Ink to ebonize the Walnut.

To finish I used Formby’s Tung Oil Finish, sanding with 0000 steel wool between coats, and then finally wax.

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful love the G&G style. Only having seen a little bit of their stuff, do you think that your cloudlifts in the cherry sides are a little harsh? I think the ole Greene brothers might have pushed them inwards a bit and maybe made them more gentle. Then again, hard for me to tell without seeing yours firsthand maybe it’s the angle that’s tricking my eye.
