I am not referring to anything sexual, sorry if that is disappointing. I spent two months in anticipation, I spent one day being a voyeur and now I have my satisfaction. One of the great gifts of being in Boquete Panama is that local crafts are still affordable and when you can find a craftsman with talent you can get something worth having; hence my ecstasy.
In my year here I have had experience with various cabinet makers, some like Marco Bogazzi who did some excellent furniture for me, some just decent like my kitchen cabinets, some awful like my warping doors.
When I remodeled last year I left a new room, fifteen feet of wall space, ten feet high, for a walk-in closet.
I wanted something nice and simple and I waited. We discovered a Boquete cabinet maker and I gave him detailed drawings I made with the help of various walk-in closet sites on the internet. It took time, two months to prefab everything, it took two men ten hours to install but now I have my first orgasmic furniture. Not one piece of particle board, no plywood, all dried dimensional Cedro with a natural finish. The price, if you shop furniture you will appreciate that this entire job cost $1,000.00 and the drawers even have glides.
Fifteen feet long, ceiling high with almost enough room for Mayra’s, Imelda Marcos shoe collection. I am going to make a rare recommendation based on my experience. I will say do a written contract and realize the date on the contract is on a Panamanian calendar.

His shop is located across from the abandoned Nuare Boquete project. The quality of his work was exceptional and my reaction was echoed by Mayra who is far more critical than I will ever be.
