Williamsburg's reconstructed cabinet shop, on the site of Hay's Cabinetmaking Shop, is open to the public. Today's craftsmen explain the cabinetmaking trade to visitors as they produce furniture with the tools and designs of 18th-century cabinetmaker Anthony Hay's era. Today the shop also practices the trade of harpsichord making, documented as part of the shop's offerings in 1767. This was a unique service from a colonial Virginia shop; harpsichords were typically English imports in the South.
