    What a fantastic build! The video instruction was superb and the plans were great. Quite the challenge on many levels for me but I learned a ton of new skills and techniques along the way. I very much appreciated Darrell’s philosophy on how and why he did what he does. Hard to believe that such high level instruction is available like this. Thank you to the Guild to make this possible!

    A challenging and entertaining project! Darrell does a great job of explaining the reasoning behind his order of work and pointing out how to achieve the details of his design elements. It’s great to be able to view the lessons over at any time, as some things went by me very quickly and new details became clearer with repeated viewings. I liked that some mistakes were not edited out and I was able to see how Darrell dealt with them. I’m looking forward to more classes with Darrell and Marc.

    Darrell, thank you for this educational series, and Marc for facilitating it. Huge fan of G&G but would never have attempted such an advanced project without your guidance and plans. Own a dozen guild projects and have completed over half and I’ve enjoyed this one as much as any. Ready to make two matching dressers later this year. And I know there there are several similar builds on the guild sight already, but, Darrell, if you have another guild project after the dresser, i’d personally love to finish the set with your G&G bed frame. That piece is absolutely gorgeous. 🙂

    I recently completed a pair of Fremont nightstands. They’re lovely, and I’m proud of them.

    This course is terrific. I learned a great deal, and Darrell and Marc made very accessible the skills required to build a Greene and Greene design.

    I am certain to undertake the G&G dresser – course slated for release in late 2020…..and, most probably, any other such courses Darrell and Marc release in the future.

    I most strongly recommend this course; it’s exceptionally well done.

    I was fortunate to get to host Darrell and his wife last spring for a two-day seminar at the Santa Fe Community College department of Fine Woodworking. I had been holding off starting this project until after the seminar knowing that the little tips and tricks you pick up at these seminars can make a big difference. I adapted Darrell’s design to be used as a file cabinet. I’m very happy with the results. Darrell’s teaching methods are excellent, very approachable, always willing to give the most honest answer he can to any question. I highly recommend this project.

    This is one that I’m super keen to have a crack at. Was very great to see how such an elegant piece of furniture can be made in such a simple and methodical way with a few great little tips along the way.

    Darrell does an amazing job in this series. I learned tons of little tricks that really demystified some of the more complicated Greene and Greene techniques! Can’t wait to build it!

    There is so much here for you to learn even if you are not someone who plans on building this piece anytime soon. Darrell covers everything from design considerations to some neat tricks to perform some tasks that could help you on most any project. I think this was well worth my money and it is a project that I know I will come back to and watch again even if I never end up building it. Unfortunately for me, my wife is not keen on this style so I will have to come up with someone to make this for as a gift! I would highly recommend this project for anyone!

    Darrell is a great instructor. Engaging, a great story teller and makes the complicated less so. Really enjoyed. Hope Darrell makes another appearance.

    There are some great insights in this series apart from building the actual nightstand. I thoroughly enjoyed this instruction.
