The back of the Greene & Greene Rocker is pierced and carved.This stunning Greene & Greene rocker is the project of the week. In this 5-day class, you’ll have the opportunity to recreate this G&G masterpiece.

Greene & Greene Rocker

You’ll dive into some striped mahogany for the chair parts, then form ebony tenons and pegs to hold it all together. From piercing the splats to inlaying the burl and ebony into the crest, this rocking chair will push your abilities to their limits and beyond. The best way to become a better woodworker is to test your skills and push through what you perceive as their limits.

  • Basic chair construction
  • Floating-tenon joinery
