The legendary architects and designers Charles and Henry Greene created a uniquely American design language that represents the perfection of the Arts and Crafts bungalow style. Greene & Greene's unique furniture designs have captivated craftsman for over a century, but the sheer rarity of their custom-made pieces have made it difficult for contemporary woodworkers to recreate their designs. "In the Greene & Greene Style" is an invaluable sourcebook for any woodworker who wants to master the Green & Greene design idiom and make it his or her own. Using step-by-step instructions, extensive illustrations, and full-color photography, "In the Greene & Greene Style" shows today's craftsman precisely how the Greenes achieved their unique designs, and how to recreate them in the modern workshop. Based on author Darrell Peart's unique knowledge of the Greenes' original work, "In the Greene & Green Style" presents easy-to-use instructions for creating authentic Greene & Greene details such as ebony plugs, waterfall legs, ebony splines, and curved drawer pulls. "In the Style of Greene & Greene" goes beyond pure detail work to show readers how to use Greene & Greene designs in new projects, including several full projects for making replica Greene & Greene furniture. "In the Style of Greene & Greene" also includes valuable advice on incorporating the Arts and Crafts spirit of Greene & Greene's work into your own personal design style.
