This is an update of my review....and I wish 6 or 7 stars were possible. The reason is that I just finished a Greene & Greene TV cabinet where I used several of Darrell Peart's techniques and the results were unbelievable perfection but yet made two tasks which I always dreaded as "easy as pie". Here is more detail.
Peart's sections on "Machining the Breadboard Joint" and "The Ebony Spline" taught me how to perform these tasks to perfection. I have done quite a few Greene & Greene pieces of furniture over the past 8 years but I always dreaded these two challenges because of the breadboard ends being proud to the top. After reading and then trying Peart's techniques (which were very well written and illustrate), I asked "Why didn't I think of this?"
For any woodworker who loves Arts & Crafts, Craftsman, and Greene & Greene styles, Peart's book is a MUST for your workshop and will teach you exactly how to perform woodworking tasks needed in these style with ease and perfection.
I thank Darrell for taking the time to publish this book.
If you are interested in viewing another book showing not only furniture designed by Greene and Greene, I highly recommend 'Greene and Greene Furniture, Poems of Wood and Light' by David Mathias. This does not cover the building of furniture, but shows many examples of furniture as well as the houses the design elements of several of their houses.
The author does a fantastic job showing key details in the Greene's amazing furniture. I found the chapter on Mr. Pearts
own woodworking to be very informative and stimulating.
This is one of those rare woodworking and design books that I find myself reading and looking thru just for the sheer enjoyment of it.
The photos are impressive! Very nice.
