A peek into my workshop

I don't turn wood with an electric lathe and use a classic, foot-powered pole lathe instead. This traditional method of wood processing used already by our ancestors is more time and energy consuming, but it eliminates all the stressful noise. Besides, the natural approach allows me to focus on the very structure of wood, its potential and my artistic expression.

Each piece of wood that comes into contact with food is cooked 2 to 3 days in salt water. This procedure destroys fungi and thus protects your health.

I use copal lacquer made of copal and amber lacquer made of amber resin. This type of resin is a several thousand years old fossil resin, melted and mixed with linseed oil in order to keep it liquid. After the oil dries, the wood has a glossy hard coating with a honey tint.

About

I am a 35-year-old graphic designer and web developer with a great passion for woodworking. I love the pleasant, warm feel of wood and dedicate all my spare time to working with this noble material.


Each piece of wood deserves to show its best

I have always loved taking a piece of wood and turning it into something unique and useful at the same time. I love the feeling I get, when I see various artworks from the past. They have never ceased to fascinate me. The use of a traditional woodworking approach combined with the natural beauty of hardwood trees makes my thoughts come true.

I usually use only hand tools and traditional ways of wood processing, natural adhesives (bone glues), dyes and pigments (self-mixed milk paint) and also finishes (natural drying oils, beeswax, and hard resins such as copal and amber).
