Thomas Chippendale

The second series is on Thomas Chippendale, and the furniture he produced.

Grinling Gibbons

From a link provided by Australian Wood Review, I have been watching a couple of video series on historic wood carvers.  The work is unbelievable.  The first, here, is on Grinling Gibbons, who came to London following the Great Fire as a wood carver.  The body of works he produced is astounding, and well worth watching.
