the pulling action will naturally offer the least chance of binding. A more perfect marriage of form and function would be difficult to find. The arched pull presents the world with a sleek form, while providing full uncompromising function. The arched pull, in its many variations, was used on several original Greene & Greene designs.

strap in position, slide it back and forth letting the 80-grit sandpaper remove material from the overhang until it ceases to remove anything. The measured paper should have allowed the sandpaper to remove precisely the amount of material to form a perfect fit. If a small gap appears (too much material removed) you may have placed too much pressure on the topside of the strap. Even sanding pressure should be given on the overhang of the strap where it rests on the face of the base. 26.
the pull to the drawer front. Ebony Bars Machine the ebony bar stock in long square lengths about 1/64" oversize in width. Using 150-grit sandpaper, impart a slight “pillow” shape on the face side. Ease the edges very slightly, and then sand through the grits until 600 is reached. Buff the face on a buffing wheel with white rouge. Cut each bar to length, about 1/64" longer than the individual holes. Slightly ease the just cut edge with 320-grit through 600-grit sandpaper, and then take to the
chuck. Sand the exposed portion, then reverse the dowel, wrap the other end, and sand again. Once the bit size is determined, secure the block in the boring fixture with the rounded corners facing in and a piece of ¼" material underneath for back up. Position and clamp the fixture under the bit so the centerline on the block registers with the center point of the bit. Now bore the hole. After drilling, remove the ¼" material and blow the area out, then reposition the backup piece for the next
of each end face. Blend the bevel to match the 1⁄8" radius round over of the two face edges with a flapping motion backed up with your thumb. Finish sanding to 220-grit. 8. Blend the bevel to match the 1⁄8" radius. 9. Apply glue to the interior of the hole in the block. 10. Slide the first block onto the dowel. 11. Place the second block on the dowel. Glue up First, make a spacer ½" thick (distance block is from end of dowel) x 2½" long (distance between the blocks) for
