Cabinetmakers made fashionable furniture like tables, chairs, desks, and chest of drawers. Watch expert woodworkers fashion the intricate details of luxury products with period hand tools. In the same workshop, visit the Harpsichord makers, specialized craftsmen who build stringed keyboard musical instruments that sound by quills plucking strings. See how woods, wire, and feathers come together for delightful music and beautiful workmanship.
