On February 9th the the Southeast Michigan Woodworkers (SEMIWW) Club meeting topic will be about the famous architects and furniture designers Greene & Greene. This style of furniture is probably the second most popular design for hobbyist's to build behind Mission Style furniture. While the two differ quite a bit in their fundamental form they both emphasize clean lines, quality materials, and sound joinery. At the highest level each style can be both exceedingly beautiful as well as difficult to build. On the other hand some of the simpler designs are very accessible to anyone with a basic set of tools and can produce furniture that is exceptionally pleasing to look at.

The original Greene & Greene furniture was usually mahogany with ebony details but it can be made with any variety of woods and still look great. If you'd like to learn how this chair was made, then come and join us!

If you have a G&G project to share, tonight would be a great opportunity to bring it in or pictures on a thumb drive.

Meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month at;
Maker Works
3765 Plaza Dr
Ann Arbor, MI 48108

Starting about 7:00 pm and ending at 8:45 pm.
