- Adhesive liquid to keep the different wooden pieces together: a constant heating process
is needed to help dilute the glue and make it more efficient when cooled. Or cold “vinyl” process :when
the liquid is diluted onto the surfaces, it solidifies after a few hours when coming in contact with the air.
- The humility to recognise the importance of who works at every step of the work process.
- Imagining something on an apparently blank background
- A well precise period of time where there are certain styles and given characteristics.
- The support of the mobile part of a piece of furniture.
- Intersection of coloured or previously worked wooden pieces between two types of wood or two different types of work.
- GROOVE AND TONGUE JOINING
- Way of assembling different parts of a piece of furniture, above all according to periods and styles.
- First phase of assembling where there is a need for squaring properly the piece of furniture to have a proper follow-up and a good working of the mobile parts.
- A particular and artistic finishing job to complete the blank piece of furniture.
- PLY-WOOD OR VENEERING
- Wooden sheets sawed at a 3 mm minimum, to assemble and glue as coating on parts of heartwood.
- “FISH- BONE” WORK
- You use very striped veneer sheets and you assembled four pieces at a time to form a rhomboidal figure.
- MARQUETRY WORK
- Gluing and fixing with small nails briar wood, veneer sheet, thread and inlaid work.
- BRIAR WOOD WORK
- Assembling of different more or less dark briar wood sheets intersecting and shaping
them morphologically according to the same veining or assembling centered or specular briar wood when
there are big enough pieces and in even numbers to make two halves, pieces commonly called “patches”
- VEINING VERTICAL WORK
- Cutting of the planks perpendicularly to veining, exploiting the visible effect of very close stripes.
- Machine tool used for smoothing and sanding in a uniform way.
- Operation that brings the piece of furniture to be revalued in all its external parts thanks to
its shine and colour: shellac French-polish, with liquid and solid furniture polish.
- A needed decoration and added beauty.
- Solid and thick part of wood without any transversal work.
- Construction standards to be used for furniture.
- What makes the difference from banality : it is what the eye sees and transmits to the soul.
- PLANING MACHINE
- Machine tool used for planing planks.
- Machine tool for pressing after gluing the different pieces of slabs.
- The pleasantness of the piece of furniture joy to the eyes: the most important thing in a beautiful piece.
- BRIAR WOOD
- Parts of the wood where there are more dark and light veining. it is usually the main nucleous “head” of the
trunk from where different branches diverge or “the stump” from which diverge the true roots.
- BAND SAW
- Machine tool used for cutting in shape to do the veneer sheets or any other cutting.
- CIRCULAR SAW
- Machine tool used for aligned or transversal cutting or for doing some types of inlaid work logically with more passes
- SIGN AND DRAWING
- Figurative starting sign for all the moulds of different parts of a piece of furniture and the piece itself, essential for all masterpieces
- SHIMMING MACHINE
- Machine tool used for bringing the planks to the desired thickness.
- Optimal drying of the wood before work.
- Respect of the criteria of who created a new era.
- Resin or chalk or wood dust mixture and glue for covering small holes.
- TECHNIQUE AND EXPERIENCE
- The secrets of generations who have always wanted
mentally and manually to go beyond.
- WOOD TURNING
- Warping and rounding small wooden pieces like the important accessories of the piece of furniture (legs, columns, pine-cone pieces).
- MOULDING MACHINE
- Machine tools used for doings groove and tongue joints and frames.
- Plays of lights and shades of the trunks or of the planks (it indicates the age of the plant).
