Description

As architects and designers, Charles and Henry Greene set a standard of excellence in their interpretation of the Arts and Crafts style. Their blending of arts and crafts with an oriental design created a unique and distinctive style. Two other brothers, Peter and John Hall, were also heavily involved with the final appearance of the work attributed to the Greenes. These were the craftsmen who built the houses and furniture to such high standards. This document box will highlight the details that make a Greene & Greene piece. Box joints left proud and gently rounded, breadboard ends with ebony splines, gently domed square pegs highlighting the joinery and fine inlay all add up to a special piece. Learn how to incorporate all these fine details in this document box that epitomizes the craft. Make one and get ready to make many more as family and friends request they be next to receive such a special gift.
