Hello my friends. I come back for a long period of “vacation”. I was verry verry busy on my job, but last week I begin my holidays and I made something. It’s a small box made from lime tree, finished with varnish and represent one of beautiful romanian castles, Bran Castle. On the left page I describe the “life” of this castle, from the begining to 1936, when he become museum. I hope you like it.

this is basswood (i hope this is the translation in english). I work with pine also. We have oak, beech, cherry,walnut , most common regular woods. The exotic wood is expensive and is rare (at least in my area)

Cool, thank you Marian…I always like to get the feel of craftspersons in different locales…Some items are made even more difficult when there is no ready source of material.

Yes, Basswood is probably correct…it is an excellent wood for carving and shaping…As shown by your wonderful example…

That’s one of a kind for sure, very nicely done. I was expecting a different kind of box, those page-lids are fantastic.
