Greene and Greene: Design Elements for the Workshop Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Considered among the highest achievements of the American arts and crafts movement, Greene and Greene furniture was custom-built for specific interior spaces, and many of the pieces still remain in their original locations. This manual, written by a nationally recognized furniture maker, provides intermediate and advanced woodworkers with well illustrated, step-by-step instructions for classic Greene and Greene details, including ebony plugs, cloud lifts, leg indents, brackets, and pulls. A discussion of the design philosophy of the period accompanies how-to chapters, and photographs of contemporary Greene-inspired furniture provide ideas for projects. Biographical sketches are included for Charles and Henry Greene, Peter and John Hall (who built most of the furniture), and competing furniture maker Gustav Stickley.

Book News Annotation:

Peart, an expert furniture maker in Renton, Washington, has written a practical guide describing how to recreate joints, plugs, types of wood and finishes, and other stylistic motifs of the celebrated early 20th-century Arts and Crafts style architects and furniture makers. Many examples and detailed instructions are included for types of furniture and design elements. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
