Tambourines, Cabinetmaking, Lathe, Pylons, Clocks, Pencils and Pens Since he was little, Carmelo saw how his father worked with cabinets, furniture, beds, bedroom sets, and shelves and helped him. I always took the square pieces of wood and made them round with a knife and sandpaper. His dad had a wood lathe and one day he asked him what it was and how to use it. Since then, when his father explained it to him, he felt the desire to learn how to use the lathe. The first piece on the lathe was a flower pot for his mother's basin that had broken. Then he continued making cabinets, tablets and furniture. In 2007 he was certified as a turned wood craftsman. Later he began to work with percussion instruments such as tambourines, bongo, bomb barrels, in which he also became certified.
