He composed his works with care, in a light and sober taste. Martin Ohneberg was a cabinetmaker with a delicate and flexible talent, and also an excellent inlayer who often used a veneer of rosewood leaves of very good quality. He made chests of drawers, corner cupboards and especially flap secretaries, of which he produced an infinite variety. Ohneberg's production is Transition and Louis XVI style. Étienne Garin, rue de Charenton, was one of the founders from whom he asked for their bronze ornaments.
