Dilo, thank you for sharing the construction details of your cabinet. I simply cannot imagine the talent and patience, not to mention the effort, that went into its creation. This is truly a masterful piece of furniture.

I’m writing a personal message for you over this.
It’s because I can’t tell you everything I felt seeing your work and reading the article, not even in Portuguese. What could I say with my bad English!!!
However, I don’t mind if you like to reproduce it here in Portuguese or translating it to English.
Congratulations again and again.


Have your say...
