Dear fellow Jocks,

As some of you may remember, about a month ago I joined this incredible Web blog by posting my recently completed project (October 2008), the Rococo-style cabinet entirely made of solid rio rosewood. This cabinet is intended to serve as the upper cabinet of a two-bodied cabinet (like the American highboy).
I am currently addressing the sweet problem of conceiving and building the corresponding lower cabinet, an undertaking that will provide many additional technical challenges.
””In the attached text I described the sequence (with photos) of the many woodcarving operations that I have performed in order to accomplish the first goal.

You do some truelly amazing work in such a small space. Thanks for reminding us that we don’t need huge workshops to accomplish what you have done. Thank you, Thank you.

Wonderful look at how you do the curved mouldings. I assumed you used some kind of moulding plane but now I see its drills, chisels and scrapers. I continue to be in awe.

I am in awe.
Absolutely amazing. You must be in your own little world when you are working… a silent world except for the chipping away of the wood.
