    G&G Inspired Nitestands

    I have mentioned these here and there in other posts. I have only recently gotten a couple of days to give them some serious effort. Feels good to work in the shop instead of in my head ;-)

    I am using mitered and pegged tenons. I thought to use the coping sled to make quick work of the tenons but had already cut the shoulders so . . . no backer board. I put a small chisel tap on the line at the exit point:

    Tenons mitered fine:

    This is the general appearance from the rear (no drawer yet) without the lower shelf. My design includes the shown Blacker House leg details and pegged, emphasized-finger-joint drawers:

    The breadboard top is typical G&G. Material is ash with ebony for the plugs. I've got a reasonable number of shots about the build that I'll post after I get past removing milling marks and such. Still pondering the finish.

    Thanks Glenn.

    I must admit that I'm also a fan G&G and this is thanks to you ( or you to blame?)

    The first time I knew abouth them was due to one of your posts ( your box remember?) then I looked for information and I became a G&G enthusiast.

    I see the rebates on the legs, have you followed the instructions given in Darrel Peart's Book " G&G Design elements fo the workshop?

    I look forward to see that table finished. Please keep posting!
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Toni,

    There is so much to enjoy about G&G's work. The leg detail is right off G&G's Blacker House chairs and Darrel does give examples of them (and a lot of other nice details too). These two detail shots from the Gamble and Blacker Houses always get me:

    And me as well, together with the columns or pillars of the exterior of the Blacker house that are tied together with three "U" shaped steel stripes tensioned by wedges.

    I have some time today to take the machined legs to the first stage of shaping. Four sides done, 28 to go . . . Maybe I'll actually finish these as a Christmas present to myself ;-)

    Ooooooooooooooo I like it. Did you use the jig described in Darrell Peart's book?
