Having seen Many of Darrell Pearts fine Greene and Greene inspired most wonderful fine furniture pieces posted on LJ s I thought I would look at his profile and found his great web site were he had his book available so I decided to order one. When I Ordered this book my expectations were low because I’ve purchased artisans books from web site before and received anything from computer printed pages stapled together to what looks like a pamphlet with minimal information. After receiving Darrells promptly mailed book yesterday I do what I normally do open the package and do a quick thumb through just to get a feel for the book. As I started paging through his book I found a great history of the furniture style and it’s makers, many wonderful color photos showing elements of Greene & Greene elements ,techniques,Jigs, finished furniture, and more.
Also there are detailed drawings of furniture and jigs. The book includes Darrell’s fantastic furniture and other artisans plus museums,sources for materials , organisations and groups. But wait there’s more… What is it ? you will have to get your own copy to find out. This book is a must have, high on my list of woodworking info and furniture making books of the 600 woodworking books I have it’s in the top 3 for sure and I’ve only read half way through. I’m trying to find a way to add more than 5 stars as a rating. Darrell can not only teach most of us how to make some of the most outstanding G & G furniture on the planet but could show all of the publishers how to make and unbelievable great book also. Darrell thanks for sharing your talent and know with this marvelous book.
