Hidden Compartments in Classic Furniture? - Learn How They're Built!
In this unique full-length video download, expert furniture craftsmen Jeff Headley and Steve Hamilton walk you through the construction of a classic 18th Century drop-front desk. Rather than a how-to building experience, Headley and Hamilton dissect the piece in reverse, discussing the why's and how's of the joinery used for the case, gallery and drawers for the entire piece. As an extra bonus, they point out a dozen hidden compartments in the piece. A mix of history, furniture anatomy and period construction, you'll find this video entertaining, as well as instructional. Understand the joinery used to build classic furniture and see what's improved and what hasn't.
