    Your creations are wonderful, Matt! As an artist myself, I have always been attracted to wood because of its magnificent definition in the natural state. I marvel sometimes at the patterns just naturally formed in a door, in a cabinet, or just the right piece for a project. You have such a gift to yet elaborate so creatively an already beautiful piece of nature. I am envious that you get to experience the sensory beauty of wood while you create. Thanks.

    A pleasure to be with you on the Criticism Panel.
    That was so interesting I thought.

    All the best, Joyce
