This Piece, a Coffee Table, was machine carved. However the art work and designing has been done by hand. I went to Ghana, Africa this past March and visited my sister and her husband, Fred who is a chain saw mechanic. I visited them because I needed wood to ship to Cleveland for my projects and Fred had been the source of most of the Mahogany I have used. He told me he dose not have any good wood around and what is left is only for firewood.I checked the wood and selected 10 pieces which I transported to my house. Next, I ask him to come with a chain saw and help me, after I had studied the wood and sketched my designs . It took us about a week to do the rough work. I told Fred I will do the rest in Cleveland. I have been working steadily on my mahogany furniture. This is the fourth one I have completed it has not been an easy journey as the wood was not cut with purpose. Pictures will soon be popping out.
