Greene & Greene Writing Desk
Inspired by the designs of renowned architects Charles and Henry Greene, this writing desk features classic Greene & Greene motifs which can be found on pieces from the Blacker House, the Thorsen House, and the Ford house.
Made from American Cherry, with Walnut Accents, for its strength, workability, and appearance, this desk features exposed, proud, box joinery for the drawers; A continuous grain front apron; A True Breadboard top; the Classic “Blacker Spline”, to embellish the transition from breadboard end, to top; Sculpted and Pierced stretchers; The classic Blacker foot with indents; And of course, the Cloud Lift detail the Greene’s are famous for!
Upon completion of the course, students will have a desk that is dry fit, together, and ready for sanding, glue up, and finishing work back at their own home shops. Or students can choose to have us complete their desk to our museum quality standards by taking advantage of our completion service.
This class is limited to only 6 students, so you’ll receive lots of instruction & personal attention !
