Most woodworkers are familiar with the brothers Charles and Henry Greene, who designed the historic Arts and Crafts bungalows and furniture a century ago. But Greene and Greene may not have been quite as well known today if not for another set of brothers: John and Peter Hall — the Hall brothers.
In this video, woodworker and Arts and Crafts historian Darrell Peart shares his research of the Hall brothers, compiled for his book Greene & Greene: Design Elements for the Workshop. Peart explains how the Halls elevated the Greene’s design to a level of mastery with their regard for craftsmanship, quality, and design. See examples of their early work and learn about the legacy they helped leave behind.
