I have two years of experience in working at a wood shop. My motivation to join the Accademia was to expand my knowledge of craftsmanship and to accomplish the master course. I see the incredible value of furniture design because there are no longer many carpenters as we've had in the past. Due to the advancement of factories and the machinery, there is no longer the beauty of fitted furniture which made me started to question.

Furniture Making & Restoration vol.13 (One-Year Course – Jioh)

Start of the first restoration piece, a leg of the ancient mirror frames.
Due to the humidity and layers of the piled dust, use the Universal Enferner (Remover) to clean corners & surfaces.
To use the remover appropriately, with a sponge soaked in hot water to clean the surface. The chemical needs to sit on the surface for around 3-5 mins. Once the chemical has been properly soaked on the surface, use the steel wool to gently remove the excessive along the lines of wood. With another clean steel wool without the excessive, wipe all the remaining of removed dirt/varnish.
For the more persistent stains, use a sharp bisturi to remove. Once all the dust has been removed, use sandpaper to carefully sand the surface. To completely remove all the residues of remover.
The piece was not too damaged apart from the dirt and was ready for varnish after cleaning with sandpaper.
As I’ve used to wax the inlay plates, use thick gommalacca mix with brush to apply. Be Careful to only apply one layer and to not reapply until it’s dry. Once the gommalacca is dry, apply wax with a thick short brush. Just apply thoroughly and clean with a piece of cotton fabric.

Basic Lesson, creating wix.
In the process of creating the Indesign pages, I’ve developed the idea to create an interactive website.
Engaging the photoshopped images and edited videos to deliver the various visual messages.
Every images and icons are linked to the next page/images which are related to the previous, making the possibility for audiences to interact the infinity.

The home page to present an image of a drawing, the audience will be able to click on the text which will redirect the audience to a nature video. It’s a video which I recorded from Lisbon and made a gif to loop. Image of a bee in the flower pedal will redirect you Symphony’s piano video, which has been heavily digitalized.

I am continuing to develop a better sense to work in digitals and how I could present/share on online
