Judge's written comment from the 2012 Northern Woods Exhibition:

"Details compliment and echo in several levels. Would want this in any room where I want to feel at home." ― Judge #3

Transcript of recorded comment:

"... commenting on entry number twelve thirty-six, the Serenity cabinet. I really enjoyed this piece, it has nicely pleasing proportions overall. I enjoy the back panel echoing the front door. This inspires me to want to employ some of your ideas, some of your vision, in some of my own work at home. I love how all the details complement with small surprises. You're able to avoid having any detail speak too loudly. They all kind of whisper. It takes a good eye to pull that off and it's very well done. I just really enjoy this piece. I could see it in a number of room settings. I could see it in my workshop holding a couple of prized chisels. I could see it in a library holding a small ceramic vase. It's a beautiful object, nicely done, nicely matched grain and figured wood. Great job. One of the nicest pieces here in the show. Thank you for sharing it." ― Judge #3
