In the streets around the museum there are stores selling wood sculptures in various costs and sizes. In the picture below starting left to right: a typical store, a piece of wood, a wall hanging wood sculpture, two wood sculptures and last is the stores owners. Can you guess which one was the most expensive piece? If you guessed any other thing than the “piece of wood” then you were wrong. That is right, the piece of wood is the most expensive one apparently in all of Taiw...
When I first starting thinking about writing this article, I came up with several ideas. At first, I wanted to give the article a sense of mystic and intrigue, but lets face it I am not Herman Melville, and why would I want to be? Then, I tried writing it like an information piece, but in the end it sounds like a term paper. I was just about to give up, when I decided to revert back to myself and just write it without thinking about too much. This post is about a wood sculpture museum ...

So, when my wife told me there was a woodcarving museum in Yerevan, Armenia when we were in Kazbegi, Georgia, I was like WHAT? Are you pulling my chain? Because my wife does this sometimes just to mess with my head, but this time she was not kidding me. So, when we got to Yerevan, Armenia a week later, I had to locate this museum ...
Paris National Conservatory of Arts and craftsa lumber jerk in Paris Some of you know my French history.Also that my wonderful Paris love story sadly ended. Was actually back in Paris not so long ago, but Paris was under the dark, so I went back fast and have closed the book with peace in my mind, but a little sadness my heart. But my love for Paris are still there, especially for the way the French celebrated the crafts, the love and respect they have as a historic tradition for the cr...
A Web Of Connections You never know the connections that might be made from being in a show, exhibition, or getting published. It seems like it is never is a straight line in arriving to that point nor where you may go from there. It is more like a spider web of connections and interconnections. Since being included in the fine woodworking exhibition at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, I have all sorts of emails and contacts that have come my direction. One of them was from the exe...

At 17m long, TREE is London’s Natural History Museum’s largest botanical specimen. It is a wafer-thin shaving through the entire 200 year old tree from roots to branch tips. The video shows Tania Kovats’ journey through finding the tree, deciding how to bring it down, learning how to have it resawn, CNC machined thin, and dried, and the ultimate hanging on the ceiling of the mezzanine gallery behind the Central Hall. Quite some board feet she left behind at the mill. She...
