Greene & Greene-Style Bookcase
The classic design of this project, along with your careful attention to detail, will steal the show in any room in the house.
Building a piece of Greene and Greene-inspired furniture ranks pretty high on many woodworker’s bucket list. The distinctive styling details and traditional joinery provides plenty of challenges along the way, but not to worry. We’ll guide you each step of the way. Nothing is more striking with Greene and Greene designs than the use of offset surfaces, subtle curves, and contrasting accents. We’ve provided a heaping helping of all those aspects in this bookcase. The bold styling of the signature “cloud-lift” details in the door frames, along with the ebony accents used throughout, lend a feel of authenticity to this project that will look great anywhere in the house.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
