"Some old things are lovely, warm still with life ... of the forgotten men who made them."

"When I was looking for the right maker for this desk, I knew it was you because of the love and beauty I saw in each of your works, and because you care so much about your craft that you want to teach others to carry on the traditions of it. Your pieces show that that your work is more than just a living to you, it is a calling, or a passion, if you will. Excellence comes naturally to those who love what they do, and your work shows it in abundance. I felt myself fortunate that you were willing to take on this project, as I knew you would create a beautiful piece that would do honor to Jefferson’s original design. As I said before, I can’t thank you enough."

"Both the pineapple and the monogram sign have arrived. I am thrilled beyond words. They are beautiful. I love the detail of the pieces, the gilding, the quality of the carving ... Exceptional. They have a kind of tactility, I love the look and the feel.
I could not wait to show my daughter her gift, so we viewed it together over the web. She loved the carving. I am not exaggerating, my twenty-two year old cried.
Thank you so much for your effort and hard work. Your use of your talent, your gift, on my behalf is a Great Blessing to me.
The progress on the eagle is amazing. I cannot wait to see the finished product."
