I thought some of you might find these videos interesting. Scroll down to the two last videos >>Making the Famed Hans J. Wegner “Peacock Chair”<< and >>The History & the Craftsmanship of Hans J. Wegner’s “The Chair”<<.
The videos show the production process of the chairs that cost around $4000-$5500 a piece.

great videos. it’s so interesting to see the manufacturing process at that scale. It’s amazing to see how much is still hand worked.
