Craig Thibodeau is a master craftsman from San Diego, California who has extensively studied classical methods of furniture making and creates beautiful pieces of wood furniture crafted to the highest standards. His works combine the finest materials and a touch of artistry to create a final product that far exceeds expectations. Craig is also a master of marquetry, the art of using pieces of veneer to a structure to create decorative patterns, designs and pictures, as well as parquetry which is similar but creates repeating geometric patterns.
In this video, Craig reveals a table he worked on which features many hidden drawers and compartments as well as a concentric circular wood puzzle. The table doesn't look like a much more than an end table or nightstand at first, but watch as he reveals each of its unique features - all of which work smoothly and seamlessly in the truest testament to his craftsmanship.
