Miniature maker David Brookshaw is wearing out the zoom icon on my copy of Photoshop. His 1/12 scale model of a gentleman’s cabinet shop is just amazing. Download the photos below and take a close look for yourself.
Be sure to check out the Lancashire-pattern hack saw on the wall (the tensioning nut works). Take a look at the working handsaws on the wall. And the plans for a rosewood Baltimore Hall chair on the drawing slope.
A couple details from Brookshaw: The drive shaft of the wheel lathe passes through the wall. Outside is a crank you can turn tot make the lathe spin. And the ruler and the square are made using ivory veneers on old piano keys.
There’s more to see at David’s web site, including the tool chest for this shop.
