Martin Winterhager is a carpenter based on Mallorca with a special passion for incorporating unique surface textures in his pieces. Over the years he has developed special techniques and fixtures to give his work its unique character. In this masterclass, Martin reveals these secrets and more.
"The surface is important because that's what the customer sees first - what the customer wants when they talk about their furniture."
In their joinery on Mallorca, Martin and Tina Winterhager and their team build high end custom furniture made of solid wood. Over time, they've developed their own signature style, which is present in all of their designs. The Winterhager bandsaw structure has become their trademark, and is just one of four techniques that Martin will show in this masterclass.
