The dining room set in the Schuelers' Merton, WI home has more than 650 pieces of solid inlaid wood and eight or nine types of wood, including leopard from Australia and bubinga from Africa. Click through the jump for more photos of Will Schueler's home and his amazing wood working skills.

Viv and Will Schueler live in a virtual showroom for Will's fine woodworking abilities. Will designs and builds his furniture in a 30-by-40-foot heated shop/garage just a few footsteps from his back door. Viv, who works as an administrative assistant at Froedtert Hospital and the Medical College of Wisconsin, said that nearly all the furniture pieces in their home have been crafted by her husband. She happily collaborates with him on their furniture's design. You can see more of their home, Will's work and read an interesting interview with the couple over at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
