Armed with this book, the intermediate or advanced woodworker will acquire the knowledge and skills needed to tackle complex Greene & Greene pieces, and perhaps eventually develop a style of their own.
- Explicit guidance on creating classic Greene & Greene details such as ebony plugs, cloudlifts, leg indents, brackets and pulls
- Over 200 photographs and drawings
- Pictures of Greene & Greene-inspired designs created by contemporary craftsmen
