Albert lives in Northern Russia, and makes the most amazing bases and other wooden pieces. For me he has design and built a tool storage piece, and a rack of oil paint tubes. Based only on my sketch, a photo of a plastic test tube rack..his work is not only beautiful and functional but solid, well designed and crafted..and while maybe an indulgence, his prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend him to anyone thinking of wooden items..he sells via his FB page...a pure delight..I won’t be a better artist for these, but simply sitting at my desk is the more pleasurable. I am going to get more ....full value ..
