A true carpenter can design a complete furniture and run, or even copy other designs, but treating it almost like artwork. You can also develop models in small series, but always under the concept of quality. This is the main aim of our website!
A wood working story
This humble website is an attempt to expand my practices in wood all around the world, in order to share and maybe spread my love in this ancient art that working wood is.
My father, strangely, was born an excellent mechanic, being that my grand father was a carpenter the same as me; when I was a child I spend many hours at my grandpa's garage, where he kept his tools, wood and equipment; there he worked, in an ambient that was beautiful perfum and magical enviroment at the same time.
My father, I guess, was jealous. At that time I began falling in love with the wood and its capabilities, and he --my grandpa-- knew it was my first love, sort to speak, and begun teaching me. Later in time I found you can actually make anything out of wood, sometimes even from a single piece (I made my son's cradle from a block of oak, and a few tables and foot lamps).
Time has passed, and I did lots of furniture for me, my family and friends. Wood working is the art of patience, inner peace and craftmanshift. As my grandpa used to say, "you can never skip wood in anyway". Tradition is tradition, and I understand.
Woodworking and its history
Wood was the raw material for a wide range of economic activities as well as the main energy source in the home. From the earliest days of European settlement, the timber was essential both in sugar production and in building activity. However, woodworking did not show a dynamic start until at least the seventeenth century, as evidenced by the patios and balconies or other buildings of the time.
Banned because of deforestation, the only local woods that may be used come from demolitions. Carpenters are required to buy specialized timber, where only imported woods are allowed.
Introduction to cabinets
The traditional carpenter's shop should be specific and carefully ordered. Two essential conditions for the work are: precision and comfort.
Whether the cabinet is an extension of the family house, or if it's in a specifically defined room, the craftsman or carpenter should get some good lighting conditions and have the tools in the area where the activity is executed.
The amplitude of the cabinet should be sufficient to include a workbench and its hardware and guidance. The other tools are often hanged on the walls. If the volume and weight are not excessive, those tools should be placed on the floor.
