Approximate material list (without accounting for waste):

73 Board Feet of 4/4 stock

This project will challenge your skills and broaden your knowledge of several Greene and Greene details, such as finger joints, ebony pegs, ebony splines, cloud-lifts, and the custom ribbon pull. Additional methods in drawer construction, case construction and offset pattern making will be presented along with other various tricks and techniques.
This is a stand-alone project. The Fremont Nightstand is not a pre-requisite. Everything you need to successfully build this piece will be presented in detail.  But, if this project seems a bit daunting, you may want to start with the smaller Nightstand.
For those of you who have built the Fremont Nightstands – this is an opportunity to put those skills you learned to use.
