    Hello fellow quarantine, this time I will upload a job half done as I can not find clear lacquer near my house, so I will start with the construction and in the end upload the photos with the final finish.
    It is a Spring Breaker frame of only 70mm wide, made with a small guava fork as a core inside a bamboo sandwich to achieve the necessary volume, I reduced what was left and filled what was missing, I hope it is to your liking what I have done to date :)

      I allways liked the open pores of bamboo. The smooth wood and good lines and angles complement each other. Keep us informed. More pictures please.

      There are still many details to do but I am not going to fight with this inconvenience, I will take my attention away and it will be done when this is favorable ;)

      @Peter Recuas

      I am a big fan of your work and designs.

      Excellent as per usual. I feel your pain at not being able to get supplies to finish this to YOUR high quality control. But I offer this for comfort, I love the almost finished look because I can see YOUR process of makery. I reminds me of fine art and that another human's hands were in action.
