ya hace años que lo construi para mi madre,”arcon” en pino para mi madre,es para guardar las mantas y ropa de invierno.El tallado lo realice con un par de gubias y algunos cuchillos,pasado ya el tiempo creo que no es una de mis obras favoritas.Con el tiempo algunas uniones fallaron debido a la mala calidad de la madera y a la poca experiencia del carpintero que por supuesto fui yo.Hace su funcion sobradamente,es grande y vistoso pero a mi no me termina de convencer.Para terminar añado que el acabado es a base de cera.

I am sure your mother loved it…I do. All that carving by hand must have taken some time.

“already for years I constructed it for my mother, ” receptacle ” in pine for my mother, it is to keep the blankets and winter clothes. The carved one realizes it with a pair of gouges and some knives, spent already the time I believe that it is not one of my favorite works. With the time some unions trumped due to the bad quality of the wood and little experience of the carpenter that of course it was me who was. It does his function too, it is big and showy but it does not stop me convincing. To end I add that the finished one is by means of wax.”

Beautiful, I bought one similar to it in Sardenga Italy several years ago. What wood did you use? Chestnut?
