    Not me for sure, but I'd like to meet the guy or guys who designed and made it. I believe it must be a team work between a cabinet maker, a smith and some other people.
    I like the three lobular key.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I've seen the video before, but it still amazes me to see the kind of ingenuity that went into that desk.

    It appears only one guy is credited with building this, or it came out of his factory. More interesting stuff here:

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
