This audio slide show presents an array of his work and takes a closer look at how he designed and constructed several extraordinary recent projects.

Very nice overview and wonderful carvings!
Absolutely fabulous carving, inspirational.
What an inspiration to us all.
I am always amazed when viewing Greg's work up close. His designs, wood selection and joinery stand out on their own. Then you examine the carvings that he incorporates into his pieces and become awestruck. If you are lucky enough to meet Greg at one of his showings you will discover that he is very approachable and willing to talk shop.
I have had the pleasure of seeing Greg perfect his skill over the years. My son was his friend growing up and his roomate in Boston while he attended Bennet st.
I remember seeing him early carving a ball and claw foot and being amazed by his skill and patience.
On a trip to Boston to visit my son we went by the bennet st school where he had finished the sideboard pictured and was amazed at the detail in the grape leaves on the legs each one taking a week to carve
Above all he is a humble easy going well rounded. I enjoy reading as he continues to perfect his craft.
Not sure why but the last three or four pieces by Jon, the audio starts over midway thru the slides. Have you heard this before? Mostly viewing with iPad. Thanks.
Love these pieces.
