This is a mixed-media work that includes goldsmith, marble/granite jobs, wood carving, marble turning, bent lamination, general woodworking and a new kind of “spherical intarsia” (???) which name I just invented since I don’t know how to call this kind of job.
The “GLOBE” was made to be given to my wife Lylis (Lee-lis) as a gift in her anniversary.
I wrote an extensive and illustrated article for WOOD NEWS magazine (March issue) http://www.highlandwoodworking.com/woodnews/2009march/wn43.html explaining in full, the many problems and solutions I was involved with, when making the stuff.
Since the jigs, methods and processes are not orthodoxes at all, I’ll be pleased in sending better info, through this site or over my direct e-mail email@example.com to some LJ’s woodworker fellows that may not understand my article written in “PortuguEnglish” language!
I’d like to tell to LJ’s community members that I couldn’t mention this work here before, since I had a commitment with WOOD NEWS staff (through the owner, Mr. Chris Bagby) who so kindly accepted publish my article in his so esteemed and well known magazine.
I’d like to say thank you to both sites, for receiving me and my postings.
I hope you may appreciate the “GLOBE” project.
Thanks for your kind support and for visiting my LJ’s page.
