Handcrafted Goods

Perfect craft items for your home. Inspired by my classical training but made with modern techniques, each piece is truly unique. Much more than a job, cabinetmaking is a real passion for me. Every day I am grateful for the opportunity to create art, and I take no detours in applying it.

There are different methods of making cutting boards. The method I use, to make a board last a lifetime; after planing all surfaces to be glued, they are passed through a drum sander with a 60 or 80 grit, to scratch the surface giving it a better gluing surface. This process is repeated for "end grain" boards. It is a time-consuming procedure, but it makes a big difference, making sure these joints never come loose!  But of course boards have to be properly maintained (see "Cutting board care" in the Shop section.) The boards are then soaked in a quality mineral oil, specially designed for food.  Then for the final touch, a mixture of organic waxes, beeswax and carnauba, are applied. Polishing and here is a cutting board of the highest quality . All boards come with small rubber feet and finger slots.

 

For all furniture, dovetail method, tenon-mortise retained by dowels are preferred, without excluding more common methods of screws, nails and biscuit joinery. .
