Experts' Experts: Where master Art Deco furniture restorer Ludwig Vogelgesang buys his tools

J.S. Marcus's April 3 Wall Street Journal article about master cabinet maker and restorer Ludwig Vogelgesang was, in and of itself, fascinating to me.

In his north Paris workshop, his staff of six undertake repair and restoration of priceless Art Deco furniture as well as designing and creating original work.

Wrote Marcus, "He uses tools from outside France. About 40% are from Lie-Nielsen Toolworks, of Maine, such as a special plane to finish a wood surface. The postwar move to mass production of furniture meant traditional techniques in France 'were completely forgotten,'" he says.

Up top, a video from Lie-Nielsen Toolworks narrated by its owner, Thomas Lie-Nielsen.
