My two closest friends have just moved from Cape Town to Amersterdam. I am in the process of designing and building them two chests. These are a labour of love, not a commercial project so I will use the best woods I can find and labour over the smallest details. I want to make them in solid wood.
My biggest concern is how the climatic differences are going to effect the pieces when they arrive. I would love some of your help to make this project survive the distance.
Ps. I have just ordered James Krenov’s “A Cabinetmaker’s Notebook” from amazon.com. I have a picture of what I want to build in my mind – it’s a little different to Krenov’s work but I like his ideas about wood.
