I aim for touching works rather than cool, skillful or good looking works. It is difficult for my intension alone to make good results happen as each slice of wood has own aspect. I take advantage of good part of wood and negotiate during the fabrication. In order to maximize the nature of wood, I use no stain but plant derived oil at the finishing.
