    Thanks for that Jonathan, I've seen photo's of that many a time, but this video really brings out the beauty!
    Probably make for a full weekend or two in the shop eh?

    Slightly more achievable by mortals: http://imgur.com/a/gmdVO

    There is a 65 page build thread for a slightly less ambitious Georgian Secretary that I found very interesting to follow along with here:

    page 64 has the finished shots: http://www.owwm.org/viewtopic.php?f=...2994&start=945

    I can't even imagine what the Roentgens took to do. Simply beyond comprehension.

    imho close to as impressive in some ways is the puzzle desk:

    A couple of videos of it in action.

    Just to try to calculate the amount of hours that building that would take makes me go dizzy.

    Thanks Jonathan, and thanks Ryan for the other videos, they are great as well.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    All of the work shown in the various videos is mind-bending stuff. Thanks for the links, guys.
