Quite an engineering feat to get all of that stuff happening!
... have never seen anything like it!

Thank you for posting it…


The whole piece is a tad too Fancy for me… but, I can appreciate the work that went into it.

well its interesting you would ask, i had some time after this last table i made, and i designed and made something very similar, but here is the sad part, on the day i was to start the finish on it, the place caught fire and took with it my plans and the piece, so now its a memory gone within a wisp of smoke…and as smoke will circle about the end of a pipe, Ive decided to call this my pipe dream…it was a glorious build that now fills my dreams with things of yesterday…...isn’t that a lovely story….dont cry for me, as it now gives me the chance to do over someday, i imagine i might even get the editors choice…..

After watching this I almost put all my tools in a pile and set fire to them but maybe I’ll keep trying! Is this a motivational video or one meant to discourage! To think alll this without computers or Sketchup!

Hi Paul,

Part of running a successful business is knowing who is the right guy for the task at hand…..this is a no brainer, you’re the right guy for the job.

I would have to say of all the LJ’s, it jut has to be you.

Paul I would contact the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s were they are featuring a show on the works of Abraham Roentgen. They may just be able to point you in the right direction?

Get in touch with Charles Neil. He was building an amazing Secretary when I stopped by his shop.
edit: I just watched the video… so maybe not that amazing.
