This entry is a quick heads up regarding another great video interview by Neil Lamens.
Neil & Gigi recently went on a road trip to East Hampton, MA to visit the famed marquetuer Silas Kopf. During the video interview, Silas made of a tulip that Neil “wove” in and out of the discussion. Silas took Neil on a shop tour and introduced us right hand and cabinetmaker Tom Coughlin. While discussing a current cabinet in production, Neil and Silas talk about traveling to visit historical objects for inspiration.
Silas has written a book titled A Marquetry Odyssey, that has a place in the woodworkers library and also the coffee table to enlighten those who visit.
I think you will all agree with Neil’s sentiment that ”a podcast doesn’t get much better than this!!”
