In the above video I share the third part of my recent visit to the 18th century Anthony Hay Cabinet Shop at Colonial Williamsburg here in my home state of Virginia.

On my previous visit Kaare Loftheim was working on an exquisite 18th century replica of a candle table for George Washington’s home at nearby Mount Vernon.

Brian Weldy was busy hand planing some local Walnut boards:

This lovely mahogany desk was also on its way out the door shortly after I photographed it, so I felt grateful to capture the details of this handmade piece:

Notice the perfect hand cut dovetails:

Thank you Joshua!
This level of access is simply awesome. Even having been there, you just don’t get this close to the gentlemen nor their projects.

JUST noticed something – in the picture labeled “On my previous visit Kaare Loftheim was working on an exquisite 18th century replica of a candle table for George Washington’s home at nearby Mount Vernon.” the bracket clock in the background appears unfinished (I believe you can see the wall through the glass of the clock) but in the video the clock is finished! (I am not sure why the clock caught my eye in the video, maybe because it is so beautiful?) I wish you could ask Kaare to share more information about it.

The guys in the Hay shop make it look easy, don’t they?

If I should be lucky enough to win a DVD I’d prefer the candle stand. If a tee-shirt is what comes my way I like the saw emblem (the saw nut “Warranted Superior” I think it says.)
