I can’t even aspire to that level of craftsmanship. I don’t know what you charge for your work, but it probably isn’t enough.

Dear Greg,

Unfortunatelly the Brazilian society looks down to this kind of work… If I had to make my living from this kind of woodwork in Brazil I am sure I would be starving by now (I have another profession). However, that horrible social prejudice lets me free for making things that only my dreams can order, not the market mood .

The skills you display are truly amazing, all of your pieces should be on display somewhere special.
Can’t wait to see the completed chest and BTW, the Rosewood is beautiful.
