Johannís primary focus is working with hand tools. Johann von Katzenelnbogen began woodworking at age four, as he grew older, he became more and more interested in historical furniture and spent his high-school years building scale reproductions of both furniture and rooms. In college he studied Interior and furniture design as well as fine art. Since 1997 he has been working full time running his furniture and interior woodworking company, Johann International. Johannís primary passion is for medieval things, but well made, beautiful objects from all periods of history appeal to him. He has worked in many countries around the world.

The Potomac Antique Tools and Industries Association, Inc. (PATINA) is an educational, tax-exempt organization for people who have an interest in the tools, crafts or manufacturing processes of the past.
Formed in 1977, PATINA is a regional tool club based in the Washington, D.C. area. We have members from 24 states, the District of Columbia and several foreign countries. Antique tool collectors, tool users and people simply seeking knowledge are well represented in PATINA's membership. The annual dues of $12.00 includes membership for the entire family and they are welcome to participate in all PATINA events. PATINA's original group of about 30 has grown to over 250.
Our mission is to promote and increase knowledge and understanding of the tools and trades practiced by our American ancestors. This purpose is partly served by the bimonthly newsletter PATINAGRAM which includes member-contributed articles and information of interest to our members. In addition, the PATINAGRAM provides regular announcements of upcoming meetings and auctions, reports on past meetings, reviews of relevant publications, and notices of other tool-related events. As an educational organization, PATINA is often invited to stage exhibits and demonstrations for local and national groups that express an interest in early tools and trades.
