The crystal corner cabinet was completed in 1992. It was totally hand carved according to my personal interpretation of the 18 th. Century styles in France and England. It was entirely made of kingwood (Dalbergia cearensis) rescued from a charcoal producing plant. The finishing was done with a personally prepared wax (carnauba, bee’s wax, turpentine, etc.). The project was entirely drawn by me. Only hand tools were used except for the large board sawing. The finishing was done with a personally prepared wax (carnauba, bee’s wax, turpentine, etc.). The total time for completion (one year and 3 months) includes many interruption gaps (months).
Dimensions: 50” high x 22” wide x 13” deep

Fernandino,

It is time to give up the day job and take on woodworking full time. You could sell your furniture and retire to a life of liesure making museum quality pieces. No more taking one, two, or three years to make a piece. Do two or three a year and live like a king. The world deserves more of your work. You deserve more reward for your work. Your wife deserves better and so do you.

Your carving technique is exquisite. I love the curves and fullness of your work. Maybe you will share a video of you working with us. Please continue to share your work.
