Dear Lumberjocks,

It all started in January 2009 when I published a first woodworking article in Wood News Online magazine of Highland Woodworking store, from Atlanta, USA. After that one I wrote three more articles, whose readers suggested me to join the Lumberjocks website.

The warm reception and effusive support that I received from woodworkers around the world encouraged me to submit an exhibition proposal to my social club in Belo Horizonte, Brazil (Minas Tenis Clube — a very important one). I was also encouraged to look for appropriate ways to address my culture’s historical prejudice against manual craftsmanship such as my own work. Finally, my solo exhibition was approved for a one-month period. Its title is “The Baroque in Rosewoood – A Life of Research”. The opening has just occurred on February 4, 2010.

Actually, the opening went beyond my best expectations not only because of the quantity and quality of the viewers, but also due to the cheerfulness of the environment. Later, I managed to be interviewed by the most important local newspaper which special report will be published in a future weekend edition. Now that I have shot an arrow from my bow I will not be able to stop it anymore. So, I will have to face its consequences… (pray for me, please!)

As a preparative for the exhibition I put in the air my brand new private website that is bilingual and I think it is very nice. So, I take the opportunity to kindly invite you to visit it at the address

Best regards,

-- Dilo

Dear Patron,

You, fellow Lumberjoks, have actually built my woodworker’s pride…
Be sure that we are going to be friends forever! (in addition, I am running out of hair to be combed).
Best regards,

Unlike the “old” Masters, who had to die before they became sought after, you will get to enjoy your fame. You certainly deserve all of the accolades that have been bestowed upon you.

Congratulations on your progress with exhibiting your work and the website. It is already a challenge to create masterpieces such as yours, and then to market and exhibit one’s work is indeed another challenge. I’m very happy for you and hope to see more wonderful pieces in the years to come.

Dilo, I have been admiiring your work through the projects on LJ’s and now, seeing your web page, I believe you will receive the recognition and accolades you well deserve. Your work is extraordinary and is an inspiration. I remember working with my grandfather as he hand carved decorative flourishes for his pieces….it is a beautiful art that is quickly being replaced by CNC and other forms of automation…still nothing can compare to the artizan that lovingly creates these works by hand and mind. I have been slowly teaching myself how to carve and someday would love to be able to produce such beautiful pieces as you have….Practice and learning can only take one so far though…as certain talents and vision are a natural part of an exceptional artist …you certainly have a vast amount of talent…..I look forward to seeing more of your extraordinary works as you move forward in your career.
