As he told TASR, his closest job is in Ireland. He sent feeders to Slovak families living in specific countries. He also recalled that since 2016 Podpoľany has been developing wood products painted with the theme of folk patterns. “This job is my health treatment and I need it to do my physical work. I overcame the stroke and started working on the tree. My goal was to focus on folk tales that were very close to me as a native deity, ”he said, adding that he was currently doing what was needed.

The beginning of his work is connected with the production of wood chips. However, it later became part of the Podpolian Civil Society, which specializes in regional products. In addition to woodpeckers, it currently produces approximately 50 to 60 bird feeds. They have carved folk figures from Tetvian, I only make a certain shape. “I was impressed by the embroidery, he said. According to him, the production of a booth takes one to two weeks. However, due to my health, I also depend on the help of others. I buy the finished boards and then glue them on. Although I have simple and amateur machines in my home workshop, I can handle them, ”he concludes, when everything is done and the product is painted.
In addition to overseas, its products are located in Slovakia and the neighboring Czech Republic. “However, I did not create this robot to earn, it’s a treatment for me. Interested people contact me and say, for example, that they do not want to buy my products, but I give them to them. I would tell them, send me the address, “He continues, and they still accuse him of calling him on vacation.” I did not go to exhibitions or markets before the new corona virus infection. My medical condition did not allow me to stand still and I had to move. Therefore, he noted that I usually postpone my work to responders or distributors. Sometimes I put ads in newspapers and now interested people call me. In fact, I have a lot of robots, ”he admitted.

In addition to wood fodder and snails, Dodo Slavic also produces hotels for insects and whips. “Once a girl came to the hotel for me and brought it home, she loved her granddaughter and she gave it to me and I created something new for her,” he said.
