The handcrafting technique generates elegantly streaming curves in the armrests. In making the miniature cat furniture, machines for human furniture cannot be used, so the artisan finishes the curves one by one completely by hand with his chisel, knife, and handmade file. Fine edging and other details which cannot be expressed on the drawing are refined and provided by the highly developed craftsman expertise. The armrests represent his reliable skills and excellent designability.
