Is bad ass at wood working.. she lives in Busan, Korea. She works at a studio(for fun) with a famous artist Tae Hong Park who has made stuff for Korean presidents and other...

My mother-in-law made every peice or furniture in their house... without 1 screw/nail/bolt.

Here is a peice she made... this was made from 1 solid block of wood, cut and sanded to make this..

very unique furniture. She must have one heck of a band saw. My good friend that passed away at 70 was a master carpenter. He restored Italian Victorian homes & restored furniture from the 15 century. I have a chair he carved out from the jacobian era. All done with no power tools with grape leaves & grapes carved into the back & twisted wood legs & cain bottom. I have a deep respect for those with talent.

No power tools used... all hand done with traditional korean wood working tools..

I will try to find some of other wood wock.. like a full size coffee table done the same way and style.. made from a 3 foot wide log 3 feet thick...legs and everything carved from a solid piece..

Most artists will tell you that they can see the object before it is made. This is called artistic vision. Micheal Angelo didn't carve statues from marble. He claimed the images were there already and he just chipped away the material that didn't belong. Your Mother-in-law has true vision.

thanks guys.. we have the chance to have my mother-in-law and the artist to travel over here and stay with us and will make us anything we want for free as long as we buy the wood and tools and plane flight... so sometime in a year or so we might have them come stay for 2 or 3 months..

I agree with OTF, I experienced that when I was working in graphic arts. I would be able to see the finished idea in my head and worked until I had it on paper. Her talent is evident from her work, you are a fortunate man to have a M-in-L like that.

I have tried to do that while fishing, you know, visualize the fish on the end of my line. Hasn't worked yet but I'll keep trying. LOL

Truly Amazing!! Very nice post. I have done a number of wood projects, but this really puts things in perspective but then I am still amateur status and in fishing as well. I have been fortunate enough to have some very artistic/talented friends, they have been an inspiration to me. It is a pleasure to see how much you appreciate your M-I-Ls talent.

That's impressive, very impressive. I would venture to say that there is very little sawing done and the majority of it is carving and sanding, which lends to the true magnitude of what she is doing.

Your M i L does super work! Does she hand-carve wooden flyrods by chance?
