Duration: Two days
Class Size: Maximum of four students
Greene & Greene furniture design is replete with details. The more details in your woodworking bag of tricks, the better prepared you are to tackle a G&G style project. Darrell’s G&G Details 1 workshop will cover some of the more common Greene & Greene design elements with step-by-step, hands-on instruction.
Detailed drawings of all the jigs used in class, along with tips on their construction, will also be covered. Students are encouraged to bring their cameras to record both the demonstrations as well as the jigs used.
Some of the topics included are:
- Blacker brackets
- Breadboard construction
- Exposed ebony spline
- Proud ebony plugs
- Cloud lifts
- Blacker leg indent detail
- Practical design advice on all of the above
- Radius guide (these can be difficult to find, so Darrell will several on hand for student use)
- Small plastic-headed Mallet (3/4″ to 1″ head; Thor or Stanley make good ones)
- 1/4″ dowel points
- Small flush cutting handsaw
- Layout tools: tape measure, combination square, sharp pencil
- Small square (3″ or so)
- Dental pick (not necessary, but might be helpful)
- Small chisels may be handy but not necessary
- Besides bringing a notebook, feel free to bring along a camera to make a visual record of the jigs and setups that you use in class
