Steve LeGrue explains to club members how he crafted this Greene and Greene style dressing table. The table is of Honduran Mahogany and the diamond tenons are ebonized walnut (Steve says that walnut ebonizes well). Those diamond tenons, typical of G&G style, are not functional and are for decoration only.  The breadboard edges are not glued so as to allow movement and they are intentionally sized different so that changes between the top and the edges are less noticeable.

Glen Edwards rode his cock horse to Banbury Cross to meet his fine lady so she could make him a mane, of course. In reality I think he just took the horses from his shop to his wife's craft table.  DSC00172.JPG (207448 bytes)  DSC00173.JPG (163754 bytes) DSC00187.JPG (94190 bytes)

 DSC00188.JPG (152370 bytes) More children's puzzles from Glen Edwards.  The designs were from Woodcraft.  All packaged and ready to go.  I'll bet if you put a professional logo and a bar code on the back you'd swear it came from a high end toy store.
