Some months ago I was asked to make a video by a person and a furniture by other, after squeezing my brain to get both glad, this is the result. I think the most difficult stage has been working without drawings or plans, I have to admit this shelves is not the original in my mind. At the end I´m very satisfied with the work but not very happy with the video You know I haven´t got a TV studio to record.
I hope you enjoy it friends. Many thanks to all of you

I find this to be a very cool piece of work. I m not sure what Colonial shelves are but I am assuming it is some sort of wine & glass shelf (please excuse my ignorance). Also what is the translation of whats written on the side and top? I have no idea what the top writing says, but I think it looks very cool placed there.

Well done!

Hi friend, the meaining is a sort of style like natural and rustic more or less. It has a touch from african furniture mixed with south america furniture at the Colon times.
The top words are the names for whom the shelfes are going to and the side engraving is my signature which means “Handmade by artisan flamingo/date year” Both are made by hand with a portable router after coping into the wood from the paper
The wine details were added by my inspiration It has nothing to do with the colonial style in fatc
Thank you so much for your words full of support to me
Ciao !

I also like the shelves, and I watched the video and found it interesting although I speak only English. :) You have excellent talent and are obviously growing as a cabinet maker. I think that not many cabinet makers do everything with hand tools. :) Viva la Julio!

Debes contarlo tambien en castellano,aqui somos pocos pero nos gusta enterarnos,una de las razones por lo que aqui no participo mas es el idioma.Deduzco que esta estanteria es multifuncion,sirve como botellero,para copas y creo entender que para poner algun aparato,que fue un encargo y que has mezclado diferentes estilos.Tambien supongo que la T que apoya en la pared es el sistema que utilizas para sujetar la parte trasera de las bandejas…ingenioso,perdona si me equivoco en algo.Yo hubiese utilizado otro acabado,al trabajar en pino ese tinte no queda uniforme del todo destacando mas las testas de las guias de las copas y la cenefa del botellero,solo es una opinion y no me gusta guardarmela,un saludo.

Bonito y util trabajo.Como dice Ramon, no nos cuesta nada a los que escribimos aqui habitualmente, poner el texto en castellano y en ingles, asi contentos todos.

Thank you so much Rivergirl, you are really kind, it doesn´t matter about the language, if you have any question please feel free and I will be glad to answer you, so long friend !
A mis colegas, infinitas gracias por vuestro apoyo aqui y vuestras amables palabras que me llenan de animo. No hace falta que lo ponga en español tampoco es tan importante creo, no os enfadeis amigos jejeje. Lo unico que digo en el encabezado es que es un trabajo que he hecho para cubrir dos peticiones por un lado el mueble fisicamente y por otro una serie de videos sobre como construirlo que me pidio otra persona diferente y le gustaba este tipo de mueble aunque no con todos los detalles que he incluido, solo escalera con bandejas. Lo que para mi es mas importante es el reportaje sobre la construccion del mueble que esta totalmente en castellano en youtube.
Ramon me encantan tus opiniones, no te imaginas que ayuda son para mi, creo que no te equivocas mas o menos es lo que tu dices. El acabado es el que me pidieron imaginate, a mi la verdad es que me da un poco igual desde que lo primero que odio son los tintes y barnices y los tornillos y clavos en cualquier cosa que yo haga. Sobre la T de atras ciertamente es para soportar mejor las bandejas, pero solo es necesaria debido a la profundidad que crean los apoyos contra la pared y tambien para tener las bandejas de quita y pon. Este mueble suele construirse con las baldas pegadas o sujetas a los laterales de la escalera inmovilizandolas y ejerciendo de apoyo directo a la pared sin que haga falta ninguna sujeccion inferior, pero esa no era la idea que yo queria
Un saludo
