Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With attention to detail and beautiful craftsmanship, the complex but lovely projects pay homage to the Greene & Greene style." —Karen Ellis, "Library Journal"

Step-by-step instructions and full-color photography on virutally every page walk the reader through how to add Greene & Greene details ... a superb guide for the woodworking artist seeking to hone their command of the craft. —Midwest Book Review

Library Journal
The Greene brothers were early 20th-century architects who embraced furniture design inspired by the arts and crafts movement, along with some Asian influences also popular at the time. Master woodworker and author Peart, who described the brothers' stylistic and aesthetic development in Greene & Greene: Design Elements for the Workshop, here proposes nine projects based on the Greene & Greene aesthetic. While this volume includes cut lists of needed wood and some large line drawings to illustrate positioning and measurements, there is no handholding here: the book contains neither an index nor a list of required equipment. Most of the instruction is text, with a just a handful of photos showing technique. VERDICT With attention to detail and beautiful craftsmanship, the complex but lovely projects pay homage to the Greene & Greene style. However, because of the lack of basic instructions and project outlines, this title is recommended only to the very advanced and well-equipped woodworker.

    Even more instruction and details than Darrell's first book

    After using Darrell's first book to help me build some G&G nightstands, I knew I had to have this book. If you are looking for instruction on how to implement the G&G details into your projects, this is a must have.
