Build a Greene and Greene Side Table

Pinned and plugged joints add beauty and strength

by

Woodworker Gary Rogowski shares plans for a simple and beautiful mahogany side table that embodies the details and construction techniques practiced by prolific furniture-designing brothers Charles and Henry Greene in the early 20th century. The table base is assembled with pinned mortise-and-tenon joints; square ebony plugs decorate the pinned joinery; breadboard ends keep the tabletop flat; and the piece features a cloud-lift motif.
