I’m addicted to the Stickley/Greene & Greene stuff (we just visited the Thorsen House in Berkeley, CA to see the Thorsen table). I’ve got a bunch of solid mahogany and I just scored two 4’ x 8’ sheets of 3/4” marine grade mahogany plywood from a friend sailing down to Mexico. I need some ideas of what to make that will utilize the plywood effectively, be a beautiful addition to our home, and be a project that I’ll be jazzed about. Please post ideas, pics, links, etc. Thanks in advance.

Greene and Greene style is a great influence. I built these doors to liven up this gallery. There are many Greene and Greene style furniture ideas out there. I’m an old guy that uses google images way too much (according to my kids), but I get inspired with it.

Current issue of Woodsmith has a nice bookcase project that would be neat to build.
