That is one gorgeous piece of art! Do you carve with power tools or hand?

Thanks for posting,

The finish is my little secret. :)
After the work is finish I impregnate wood with warm natural mineral oil, which seals the pores of the wood.
Once dry well, I impregnate wood with a special mixture, which I make myself by pure beeswax and other two ingredients without the use of chemicals.
This is a very old recipe with excellent results.
Over the years, the wood becomes more beautiful.

Very beautiful art! I would be very interested in your thoughts about how well your technique seals the woods. What is your reason for sealing the wood before the finish is applied? I assume to prevent wood movements. Do you think your sealing technique might be useful for my clock gears?

First, I never don’t use wood , which hasn’t dried at least 5 years, to avoid deformation at a later stage.
I sealing the wood before the finish,to seal the pores of the wood and prevent it from breathing.
That way, it will not absorb moisture.
Thank you all!
Yes,the miniatures are my passion.

I’d be really interested in hearing about what specific carving tools you use. I’m not much of a carver but I’ve got the Foredom, a burner, and a selection of gouges and knives. I’m always interested in what brand of carving tools the people with exquisite skills are using. I think I like the Hock carving knife blanks but they’re quite a bit of work to build.
