In the Greene
& Greene Style
by Linden Publishing, Fresno, CA USA
Extract from back cover of book:
The legendary architects and designers Charles and Henry Greene's unique furniture designs have capitvated craftsmen for over a centruy, but the sheer rarity of their custom-made pieces has made it difficult for contemporary woodworkers to recreate their designs.
In the Greene & Greene Style is an invaluable sourcebook for any woodworker who wants to master the Greene & Greene design idiom and make it his or her own. Based on author Darrell Peart's unique knowledge of the Greenes' original work, In the Greene & Greene Style presents easy-to-use instructions for creating authentic Greene & Greene details such as ebony splines, block & dowel pulls, fingers and waterfall legs.
Using step-by-step instructions, extensive illustrations, and full-colour photography, In the Greene & Greene Style shows today's craftsmen precisely how the Greenes achieved their design details and how to recreate them in the modern workshop.
About the Author - One of the leading authorities on Greene & Greene design, Darrell Peart writes and lectures about design, woodworking and the history of Greene & Greene. Peart is also the author of Greene & Greene: Design Elements for the Workshop
