    G&G Server, A Work In Progress

    Hi,

    I have been working on a Greene and Greene Server the last month. It's made from curly cherry with ebony accents.





    The top is a bookmatched veneer on MDF with solid cherry breadboards.



    Still have to make the drawers and clean up some details, just thought I'd share some progress.




    Take care,
    Jim

    Wow - I love it. A table very much like this is on my to-do list for this winter - it will become a communion table at our church - matching the altar, font and pulpit I built over a year ago.

    Please! Continue to post updates.

    Great looking piece! When I first saw the thread title I thought you were talking about some kind of computer equipment!

    Thanks Every one,

    This one will have to wait till spring. I closed up my shop for winter yesterday. I am having my surgery tomorrow and I am not allowed to lift things for 14-16 weeks post op, by then it will be December.

    But I can still turn some pens and make some Shaker boxes in late October...be well and thanks for your kind thoughts

    Hmmm, guess I won't see you at the Woodstock Woodshow then, eh Jim? that's only about a month.

    Are you putting that lovely piece in storage then? Or will you slip it into the house sans drawers? Y'know, you could just turn it around so the drawer openings face the wall, and no visitors would need to know that it is unfinished.

    (Unless you're afflicted like I am. I seem to have this continual inclination to point out to everyone all the flaws in my pieces.)

    blessings on your surgery!

    Exceptionally beautiful piece of furniture. You called it a 'server'. Someone else mentioned a table for communions. Is that what yours is for? I'm not familiar with the term you used with reference to furniture.
