.. for all lovers of the vine.
It was believed that this work will be simple in design and will be quickly done, but did not.
For good wine needs a lot of work in the vineyard – and again I know as well that is the seemingly very simple marquetry work takes a lot of effort.
All the best dear friends with LumberJocks.

Ahh, it does look like a simple piece at first glance Dusan, and so it could be if it were cut simply.

You however, have cut it with feeling and many subtle shades of similar note and, like a well blended wine, the notes coalesce into a symphony of good taste and distinctive style.

You are the master. We are the students.

Thank you my friend.

Dusan, thanks for sharing this with us, outstanding work as usual. Love the highlights and the detail that makes it come to life. Can you take a video of the finish going on? I would really like to see that pop. Is this going to be applied to a piece of furniture or just be framed as a wall hanging.

Again, truly outstanding work!

My deepest gratitude to to your nice words.
It’s true my friends, and my dear Douglas that frequently inspires exactly your so beautiful interaction with work that I have done.

My dear Canadian friend, the creator of ships is now the creator of the brilliant marquetry work I must admit that the final effect of my new work and I owe the fact that I have been working a little bit drunk right wine. Hence perhaps – lovely symphony :)

Dear Nedeljko, my great hope is that this work will be incorporated in just one cask of wine growers (negotiations are ongoing ..), and I will certainly attach a photo!

Yes, dear stefang, precisely the scalpel tool that I use in making motive.
