Greene And Greene Details II
A two day course with Darrell Peart


Course Description:

It's the details that make a Greene & Greene piece. In this class Darrell Peart shares a set of details that will expand your bag of tricks. You will be better prepared to tackle Greene and Greene projects. This Greene and Greene Details II class further explores and expands your Greene and Greene vocabulary.

We will make two pulls in the class:

  • Blacker Triple Bar Pull (lower right photo) - each student will take home a CNC made jig for routing the bar cavities
  • Dowel and Block Pull (upper left photo) - this is a James Krenov pull that goes well with Greene and Greene designs

Using a table saw with a dado head we will make finger joints in two versions. This method will allow you to produce accurate tight joints with one set-up - no matter the drawer size.  Strategies for drawer construction will also be demonstrated.

  • Drawer Fingers (lower left photo)
  • Base Fingers (upper right photo)

Base Straps were used by Greene & Greene on the Ford Living Room Letter Case. It's a great detail for adding visual weight to a piece.

Ebony Plugs are ubiquitous in Greene and Greene designs and are also covered in the Details I class.

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.
