Paul, your work is some of the most beautiful work that I have ever seen in the wide wide world of woodworking. There is no doubt that your work was deserving of whaterver awards you received and then some. Congratulations.

Well deserved, Paul. The table that won the marquetry category must have been really something to beat out your jewelry box.

Congratulations. A great finish in an unusually difficult forum. (for a jewelry box) Well deserved, and an award to be proud of. I never doubted that the box would be a winner! It’s an exceptional piece of work.

Dear friend,
sincerely I am convinced that your submissions deserved just cash prizes! By its gracefulness of motives, by the technical performance, and of course, by the use of beautiful veneers!

Congratulations Paul!! Some fantastic work in that show, but none better than yours in my opinion. That said, I would think that it is a great honor for anyone to just have their work accepted in such a prestigious show, not to mention winning the judges awards in two separate categories to boot! It couldn’t happen to a better guy. A wonderful outcome and I can imagine that this will provide you with a lot of personal motivation for your future works.
