“Heaven and Hell” set table closeup by Kaj Lindgård

These marvelous carvings are done by Kaj Lindgård from Etelä-Pohjanmaa, Jurva, Finland.
Kaj Lindgard
Kaj has been studying cabinet making for three years and has been carving only four years,
it’s amazing what can be achieved when you have talent and great deal of persistence ( and he is only 24 years old ).
In my opinion the “Heaven and Hell” set is the coolest carved furniture made in 2010.

Kaj Lindgård graduated from the school Vocational Education Centre Sedu cabinetmaking courses in 2009.
In autumn 2009 he started new courses to practice for Masters degree in decorative woodcarving.
The furniture set “ Heaven and Hell ” is his last project in school. It took about half a year to finish.
He said about that set:
“ The idea is that the Heaven is the mirror frame and the table is hell.. The lid represents earth core witch separates heaven and hell.
The devils (legs) protects their most important thing, the fire,, center of the earth.
The wood is birch. And I made a mixture of 1 part linseed oil and one part spirits.
In that mixture I put oil groundcolors like terracotta and etc.
The devils I left without color. On top of everything I put semigloss varnish.. which yellowed the birch a little. ”
