Bob Lang has some Green and Green plans,

Other than than, I have not seen very many Green and Green plans. I think the reason why is that they are pretty difficult to build for most of us. They have lots of odd angles and big saddle joints and ebony pins, etc.

Stickley Company now makes what they call the Pasidena line which are Green and Green designs. It there is a Stickley store near you, you probably can go look at one.

They are beautiful pieces of furniture.

Good luck.

Bob Lang is an excellent source … he has written some terrific books on G&G and A&C furniture.

The reason that shop drawings for G&G designs are scarce is (if I recall correctly), there were few if any actual shop drawings, and any that might have been made would have been lost in a fire that leveled the millwork shop where John and Peter Hall built most of the furnishings for the Greene & Greene projects.

Darrell Peart’s book GREENE & GREENE—DESIGN ELEMENTS FOR THE WORKSHOP has plenty of valuable information on that Blacker chair. He’s a Lumberjock, and a masterful woodworker.
