This cabinet was completely conceived, drawn and hand carved by me, according to my personal interpretation of the Portuguese style “Dom Jose I” (Baroque + Rococo styles). Only hand tools were used, except for the large board sawing. It was entirely made of solid Brazilian Rio Rosewood salvaged from a demolished barn (100-year-old building). The finishing was done with a personally prepared wax (carnauba, bee’s wax, turpentine, etc.). It took around 3 years to be completed with many gaps of several months each, due to the process of creation. It was completed in 2008 and it is 34,5 inch high.
