Markus Kramer's masterpiece
His vision brings the French past into the present
Many large companies today rely on Columbus vacuum technology to produce extraordinary workpieces made of wood and wood-like materials. Quite a few of these companies, which now employ hundreds of people, once started out as one-person businesses.

In this blog we would like to state once again that Columbus is perfect for all people who want to define the limits of their possibilities solely through their own imagination, regardless of company size.

The master and his vision


Our story is about Markus Kramer. The 27-year-old is a passionate carpenter and is now a master of his craft. As usual in the carpentry industry, Markus had to create a masterpiece in order to achieve the title. His vision for this has its roots in France's past. Because the piece that he finally made is based on an old French telephone cabinet from 1910.

Markus transformed this vision into the present and created a truly beautiful one-of-a-kind. In the manufacturing process, Markus Kramer made use of the many advantages of vacuum technology. So he used the Columbus vacuum bag Vacuflex to give his workpiece its characteristics through laminated bending, form-veneering and coating.

Structure and manufacturing


The main components of the cabinet, such as the top and bottom, are made of black through-dyed MDF, veneered with American walnut veneer using Vacuflex. The roller blind is also made of black MDF, which was also covered with 2 mm thick linoleum using Vacuflex. A black linen fabric is glued to the back. In addition, all 164 slats of the roller blind are fitted with a solid American walnut strip. The inner back wall consists of several layers of flexible plywood and veneer and was bent into shape with the help of a template in the vacuum bag. The drawers are solidly built and can be pulled out completely via a classic guide rail. All three drawers were made with finger joints.

Masterful benefits


As you can see, a vacuum bag, which is the inexpensive option for entering the world of vacuum technology, offers a wide range of possibilities. This gives you applications such as the laminated bending of wood to form curved workpieces, the veneering of curved parts or edges, but also the covering of wood with other materials.

We thank Markus Kramer for sharing his story and wish him all the best for the future.
