Location: Alqueidão, Tomar , Portugal

The Dutchman from Alqueidão,

just started with the natural grey hair period of his life. The meandering paths away from that straight highway, leading to the unavoidable coffin, made him see the most breathtaking views, pass the dark corners of society and brought numerous kinds of unexpected encounters with the good and the bad. A, not always understood, but inexhaustible and relentless creativity made ​​him enthusiastic for 12 trades, resulting in 13 accidents before realizing that one doesn't need to travel on ready made roads.

​The rock 'n' roll hair is cut, the bandanna's dropped in the big bin of rags, blue suede shoes exchanged for steel nosed boots. A 300 year old ruined building was transformed into a workshop, the garden into an open air stage and the little cottage on that lonely hill in the vicinity of rural Portugal, turned into a home. Doors are open, clock's don't count hours and food is cooked instead of brightened up by micro waves. Old things become new things just by treating them with a little passion, some 12 trade tricks and compassion for that little paradisiac spot on the planet.

Not Just Sawdust, Não Só Serradura, because it isn't just that. It's the evidence reflecting the relentless urge to create​, the proverbial blood of that beautiful material nature provides us with. It's the sharp teeth that cut, the subdued mind that finds out what a piece of wood harbors in itself.

-- Não só Serradura, Tomar, Portugal
