My gift to myself arrived today, right on my birthday. Great timing. Now I have a lot of reading to do.
Memories of summer birthdayand a few gifts that still make me smile This summer in the end of June I held my birthday at the workshop.As you can see I was spoiled by some of the guests. One of the guests were my friend Flemming, he is the reason I have a collection of pocket knifes now, yes it’s true he gave me so many during the last couple of years that I became a collector without even knowing it. ;-)This day was no different, Flemming brought several knifes and a bottle of Jac...
Japanese, Russian, Danish teapot lidlife is a miracle Some time back I got a unexpected mail from Russia, a man wrote me that his wife’s teapot got a broken lid and that he would love if I could make her a new. I don’t know the man who wrote me, I don’t know his wife, I have never been to Russia, in fact my grandfather was a soldier, in command of a cold war base in Denmark, to keep us protected against the danger from Russia, during the cold war years. So yes nothi...
Live seems to be sweet to meand luck shines. Kind of like that postman, he always smiles at me, he always take a extra look if he have something for me and he always make me realize it’s a little big world.Yesterday he arrived again with a pack, I was expecting a hat from Germany, but this was not a hat box… View on YouTube This one is for all the post men and woman out there. Looked at the label and could see it was from my friend Madts, kind of fun to get a pack fo...
I will survivea pack came from Australia… Life moves in mysterious ways.Our LJ buddy Icemanhank Davids daughter was going to Denmark on business working with a Danish design company, so we agreed she would pass my shop for a quick hello since we have many interests in common.Life never acts just as planned and she never got the time to pass the shop, when she was here in Copenhagen… Never the less David had put present in her suitcase for me and this present then traveled ba...
Back before Christmas I built this simple beer tote to present some beers, which I had bought my Dad as a gift. As this was a gift I designed it to tightly house the bottles (the handle acts to hold them in place) but this could easily be adapted for day-to-day use. Check out the video below!

I have enjoyed my new bandsaw greatly. It was a great addition and there will be many more project coming off of it. This time I am making a small Christmas Tree Puzzle that is 2 levels high. The materials cost is extremely low because you can use a scrap 2×4. This project can get the kids involved or you can hog all the building fun for yourself. The approximate size of the the is 6″x3″x 1 1/2″. After a little paint it can go to the kids to give them some fun times. Click here for the vid...
My wife picked up some birthstone necklaces for my sisters grand-children and of course they came in these ugly cardboard boxes.I just had to do something about this.So down to the workshop I went and started cutting wood.I think they turned out pretty good and I am sure that Willow and Annie will like these.http://youtu.be/cX0wHfsZUBs
A dove has arrivedacually it was here but I just did not know… - and doves have tails… Outside my shop I have a bench and this little lantern.Why do I tell that?Because a while back I was supposed to meet up with LJ Nisker, but I was sick so I had to cancel.Nisker is also a Dane but live not so close, so when he was in Copenhagen he passed the shop and left me a little something under the lantern, he wrote me a message that I don’t remember getting, so I never discover...
I thought it was time for an update for my fellow LJs. I’m mostly recovered from my second chemo embolization May 22. It was faster than last time, however I’m now back on my oral chemo therapy. No rest for the wicked I guess. However, I am back to making saw dust! Praise the Lord! I want to thank ALL of you for a gift you may not know you gave me. Several weeks ago I received a package in the mail with a beautiful box and the following note from an anonymous source. 5/27/20...
