Enxadão - cecilia´s father (little girl in previous photo) had to resand this wooden table several times today. It didn´t fit the architect´s specifications who is a perfectionist.

 

This is a hand of a worker, of a man who crafts things with his mind and with his fingers...

 

Once when I was young, I wrote a poem about wanting to have wrinkled hands. Because then at least I´ll know I had done something with my life, built something, like my grandfather who built this house I live in, fences, chicken coops, and other things.

 

I always wanted to be an artisan but grew up in with a virtual handicraft ability.

 

Can I shape photos or sand them like wood?

 

I´ve created some bamboo furniture in the past, but this is the hands of experience.

 

The hand of a master craftsman!
