In Dilo's words:
It all started in December 2008 when I submitted my first article to Wood News Online for your consideration. During 2009 I wrote four articles that appeared in Wood News and also joined the Lumberjocks website.
The warm reception and effusive support that I received from woodworkers around the world encouraged me to submit an exhibition proposal to my social club in Belo Horizonte, Brazil (Minas Tenis Clube — a very important one). I was also encouraged to look for appropriate ways to address my culture's historical prejudice against manual craftsmanship such as my own work. Finally, my solo exhibition was approved for a one-month period. Its title is "The Baroque in Rosewoood – A Life of Research". The opening is on February 4, 2010. So I thank you again and again for our successful "joint-venture" and take the opportunity to send you the official invitation (attached).
