Maintenance Advice Translated:
"RONCE DE THUYA Also called Loupe De Thuya, this dense wood, classified as rare and precious, comes from a variety of coniferous tree growing on the dry and rocky soils of the Marco. The thuja bramble forms a gnarled outgrowth, emerging from the ground between the root and the trunk. Sanded, polished and varnished with a buffer, thuja reveals its appearance ribbed at the heart of the bramble, lighter towards the trunk. These variations in grain, sometimes associated with the contrast of the yellow citrus wood and the mother-of-pearl inlays, are the distinctive sign of a noble essence particularly prized in high-end marquetry. Buffer varnish involves manually applying several coats of shellac, a product of natural origin made from cedar sap with added alcohol, until a soft and silky glaze is obtained. Buffer-varnished cabinetry objects acquire a patina and gain in quality over time. In order to maintain their aesthetic qualities, it is recommended to apply a soft, dry microfiber-type cloth, delicately wiping any fingerprints left during successive manipulations."
