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

"Subtle details of this wall piece draw you in. Beautiful and simple design is timeless." ― Judge #1

Transcript of recorded comment:

"Number twelve thirty-six, Serenity. This piece is not only very well designed, but it's simplicity and style... it just has a classic look about it that all the judges responded to very strongly; and I think the details are well done. I think it is not only well executed, but it is so tasteful in not only its design, but the use of wood; I think it's a remarkable piece. I really do like how the hardware is hidden in so many ways, so it feels like it's just a natural box, a natural piece of wood that just seems to function very well. Very, very well done." ― Judge #1
