Wiley Horne
In a city—London, Paris, Dresden, Amsterdam or even provincial cities—who knows how many specialties there may have been. Turning, carving, veneering, leg-making, drawer-making? Of course, if such specialists had had unique tools or vises, one would think some of it would have survived, despite the European wars (some important German tool collections were destroyed by bombing in WWII.)
