A Greene and Greene table to match our existing G&G Adirondack chairs (see chairs on quicksilver projects on LJ). The table is constructed of African Mahogany with Brazilian Ebony (Katlox?). Mortise and tenon construction. The idea was taken from a coffee table posted on Google Images. No further information was available, so the entire project was design build as it progressed. Many thanks to the many LJ contributors regarding G&G construction techniques, I learned many things with this project. Approximately 80 hours with the learning curve. Finished with Tung Oil.

Great job on this build and the chairs as well. I’m a big fan of G&G and live near the Gamble House that I visit when I feel like looking at some great woodworking. I have a couple books on them as well…. Very nice …Enjoy…..

A fellow Lumberjock has a great book on this ….

Beautiful table. Great proportions and you sure nailed the lower level with the wood selection. Those brothers had a gift with design and the amazing thing is how much that cloud lift and accent pieces take the Craftsman style to a whole new level, and from what I can tell, a revival of sorts today. Nicely done and thanks for sharing. I’m already dreaming of the next Greene and Greene piece for next years project.
