Mr. Artur is is 86 years old. He is working with wood since he was 12 and still loving, what he is doing. His father taught him everything, but there is no one to pass on the mastery of creating beautiful and truly unique wooden pieces.

For many generations there used to be a lot of wood masters in Porto region in Portugal. But nowadays there is only one man left. Mr. Artur. The last one truly working with wood the old way, handmade.

This is a hard work. For decades he was getting to his shop at 7 in the morning and coming home for dinner at 11 in the night. Today young people are not interested in this kind of hard work any more and he doesn't have student to share his knowledges and experience.

When Mr. Artur is gone the whole history of work with wood will be ended.
