I finally finished my last project, this sewing chest.
It is made from american white oak and black walnut.
Finished with shellac and my own carnauba and bees wax blend.
65 x 45 x 30 cm.
And here it is in action!
I finally made my tool cabinet!
I was eager to have a proper place to store my beloved tools.
It is made from american white oak an the panels are from a nicely figured piece of mongoy (also known as owengkol). It is finished with 5 coats of shellac and my own carnauba...
I have designed and built this timber frame structure for a community near Montserrat. Many people helped and it was a nice experience, a non-stop woodworking project from 8AM till 8PM for 14 days.
Nuria commissioned a small cabinet for the entry of her home. I think her sculpture sits very nicely on top of it!
Have a look at her sculpture work at http://www.nuriatorres.es/
This knotted piece was supposed to be waste wood, but I made a small case instead. At the bottom of the hole there is a layer of mongoy veneer.
Nice little project.
A Butsudan is a japanese buddhist altar, meant to house the Gohonzon, a calligraphy made by monks, which is object of cult.
It is made by hand from american walnut and hard maple. A few gentle curves accent a rather sober design.
My first attempt at fine cabinetmak...
