Woodworker: Mark Paulin

Paulin made this dragonfly wall cabinet over the course of four years. He used chisels to carve the dragonflies, and then layered three different colors of Humbrol paint on the abdomens. The carcase is Australian red cedar, and the hinges, knobs, and handles are made from tea tree. The finish is Estapol, an Australian varnish. Because of the weight of the cabinet, Paulin bolted it directly to the wall, hiding the hardware behind the interior drawers.
