Beautiful desk built for Louis Bonaparte. Lots of dovetails.

You would have to keep a spreadsheet up to date to know where everything is.

The builder is the Mozart of the woodworking world. Unbelievable. I don’t think anyone today could surpass that. I wonder what the price tag would be.

I have a customer the has his grandfather’s desk brought over from Austria. While not this grand it was made for two people sitting facing each other so it is pretty big. It has lots of inlay and detail and is part of a matching set of furniture. I like to look at pieces like this (and the one in the video) and drift away in thought as to how they were constructed. One person, a team, an army? Thanks for posting this, I may need to plan on paying a visit in person.

to do that with modern tools today would be amazing but think what tools they had when that was created.i cant even imagine how much time was spent.
