If I even had a ghost of a chance of living another 50 years I wouldn’t have these skills.

That has been circulating a lot today. I received it in an email from 4 different friends and relatives so far. Still amazing…!

Anyone can do it if they take their time and about 4 or 5 years. So have a go at it. :)
I do not have the patience for it thou.

Considering it was all done with hand tools, including wooden planes, non-hardened chisels, and hand saws that many would laugh at today, WOW!
Also consider those brass inlays and how they were made.

All I can says is that my mouth was slack and A-Gape!

Arlin, I have enough patience for it, I just lack the skills and I also lack the amount of wood I would need considering all the times I would need to start again on a piece.

Just think, it would sell for at least $100,000 or better.

My friends sent me that and I told them I would literally need a million dollars to make that. Literally.

I don’t know how the thing still works, imagine how tight the tolerances are and how they have stayed calibrated with all of the temperature and humidity changes that thing has gone through. Incredible.

Sounds like a GREAT justification to buy a lot of new tools and take a bunch of classes at the various woodworking schools. :D

WOW…I would never remember which key, button, knob, etc. opened what. I’d tuck something away in a drawer and never find it again!

Information on Roentgen’s life and work:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Roentgen

He was somewhat famous in his day for his aptitude with
the mechanical stuff, though his aesthetic skills were
a bit clumsy compared to his competitors in the
high end market. The French revolution was a
big setback.

Goethe mentioned him somewhere in his writings.
