Woodworker: Silas KopfMarquetry master Silas Kopf built a contemporary writing table with legs and aprons made with walnut from a tree that grew at Mt. Vernon. The tromp l’oeil 18th-century scene on the top surface, which includes a quill pen and a just-started first draft of the Declaration of Independence complete with cross-outs, includes 15 species of veneer, including horse chestnut planted by George Washington and tulip poplar from Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. The desk is 22 in. deep by 52 in. wide by 30 in. tall.
