Nothing special of furniture , but a special collaboration of two lumberjocks from two states.

I made the furniture and prometej065 – made a beautiful and well crafted intarsia of a rock which is located in beautiful Brela on sea coast Croatia .

Intarsia is built in the corner of a table.He used some nice veneer to show sea movement, trees and clouds like a true master should.

I am honored to be able to participate in such a beautiful project of my friends from the Croatian, excellent craftsmen Hrvoje!
I do not agree that the furniture is nothing special .. the beauty is in the simplicity.
The furniture is made by a colleague Hrvoje “shines” the spirit of Dalmatia and the Adriatic coast of the Mediterranean. This well know, because I partly of your origin from Dalmatia ..
I wrote you already in the mail Hrvoje .. elegantly, massive, rustic .. and at the same time modern.

Beautiful yet simple looking furniture. I like the sculptured look on the back of the cabinet that blends in with
the thick rock walls of the house. The stone top of the cabinet fits with the rustic walls. The table with its
thick legs looks massive and yet fits in with the room, and the intarsia of the small rock island lightens it up
and makes it seem smaller. You two craftsmen work well together. The wine cabinet against the wall looks
solid and well made. The furniture has a rustic look, but looking close you see tight joints and a good finish,
it makes me wish we were not separated by oceans so I could run my hands over the finish and ask questions
about the joinery, finish and even the thick stone walls. Thank you for sharing.

Beautiful craftsmanship friend. The marquetry is amazing. I think furniture is best when its not so complex and you can appreciate the natural beauty of the wood and you have accomplished that task. Well done.

Nothing special? You must be joking. The furniture you have made is beautiful. I would love to see each piece featured as its own project. They look like they each have some unique details.

I was just going back through your other projects… some great inspiring work and ideas in there. Well done.
