Don never wasted an inch of his precious woods, everything ended up in his creative laboratory. He magically converted remaining small tropical wood pieces into bar and gourmet accessories, desk utensils, organic designs, decorative objects, gifts, painter tools, jewelry, etc. It was an adventure to take a tour around Don´s shop and hunt for exotic wood accessories.
I am especially fond of Don´s parquetry service trays. They are a fundamental accessory to our bar at home. Below, two service trays from my personal collection made in tropical woods with decal studio label.
This capricious design of a nut cracker made in walnut wood is a very nice decorative piece, which I took with me during one of our many weekends together with Don at SEÑAL, S.A.
