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!
