We have been on the road recently in Arizona
(the more guns, less wi-fi state)
but I hope to get on a more regular posting schedule and...
...I was happy to meet Nemesisio Figueroa,
who is part of a woodworking family here in Alamos.
He and his brothers have a compound where they practice their craft.
Above is his son, Jesus, who is putting a finish sealer
on a mesquite window and frame.
And the window unit.
They had photos of this amazing mesquite desk.
I took photos of the photos.
They work with mesquite a lot
and the carved feet seem to be their trademark.
On the worktable the day I was there were these picture frames
and a 4 brick form for making fired bricks.
You may have seen these doors
as I just showed them in a post I did February 12th:
They were built by one of Nemesio's brothers.
I never get tired of showing these photos
as they show such a high degree of woodworking ability.
This shows more of the shop space.
What beautiful work comes out of this shop.
