These pictures are of a table I made this summer while attending a 6 day Advanced Joinery class at the Lohr School of Woodworking near Pottstown, PA.

The class was outstanding. There were 8 students and 3 instructors and they did a great job. Highly recommend it!
The table is made of walnut and cherry. The finish is boiled linseed oil then 6 coats of Waterlox original and polished with Rottenstone.

The table has some of the features of the style of Green and Green, a pair of architects from California in the early 1900’s. For more information I recommend you Google them and specifically the Gamble House in Pasadena. You will not be disappointed!

Great looking table, and last picture with the chair shows a great looking and unusual chair! Very nice use of G&G elements and evolution of those elements. How about posting the chair as another project with more pictures and more details?

Great tribute to G&G with your own touches. I’m fortunate enough to live close to the Gamble house and have visitied it 4 times already. I did the VIP tour last time. The host at one point repied I could given the tour with how much I have read about them. I bought Darrell Pearts book about G&G and loved it.

LOVE the table and chair. G&G and arts and crafts in general are my favorite style. I have heard of rottenstone but am not familiar with how it is used. Can you share some insights?

I agree with all of the above, very nicely done.

I have had the chance to go to the Gamble house and this work would be right at home there.

The first day of my summer vacation, I woke up. Then, I went downtown to look for a job. (maybe I’m the only one that knows that old humor, lol) The table is very nice. I love the contrast in the woods. Great job.

It’s the chair that really caught my attention. The table is wonderfully done, but there aren’t many “Greene and Greene” Adirondack chairs that I’ve ever seen. It is a really beautiful piece and very well executed. Wish there were more pics of the chair.
