Our Thoughts

William Ng is an exceptional teacher. His experience and confidence shines through. And it’s very clear that he knows his way around Greene & Greene construction methods.

Unfortunately, the video quality and editing of this DVD does detract from it’s overall value. It has a somewhat amateur feel to it and doesn’t do justice to William’s skill as a woodworker and instructor. In spite of this, you will see exactly how some of these Greene & Greene details go together. But we aren’t 100% sure you’ll be able to reproduce all of them in your own shop.
