Your craftsmanship, design, and willingness to share make you an honorable man and someone to look up to.

I am always in awe of your work and I feel like I got a sneek peek into your shop.

Thanks for posting this Dennis. I hope to see your shop in person some day.

Hey Dennis;

Congratulations! You deserve it. What you guys have built up is really well deserved.

You could have at least shaved though!

My hat’s off to you.

Thanks Dennis for that peek into your fantastic shop and also your woodworking philosophy. I think what you said in the interview probably reflects what many of us feel with regards to quality and making unique things. I’m sure many of us also envy the way you are making a living out of your passion for fine woodworking. Thanks for posting this. It was very interesting.

Dennis Theres not much that I can say, as always I am in awe of your work. I hope that the TV coverage brings you added success. The selfish part of me wishes it had been longer, like a Ken Burns special.
