When i was a teenager i had a small workshop in our home. I made machines, lathe-work and even an electric guitar. And i loved it!

Then came a lot of years of larger projects; refurbishing appartments, rebuilt a houseboat etc and the wood skills got at bit rusty. Settled with family, started my own business and got even farther away from woodwork.

But now in the last years i have made increasingly more woodwork again and the joy of being in a workshop is back. Jubii! The small shed in my summerhouse got too small and the garden furniture and the grill had to leave the porch in fawor of my great workbench and numerous tools.

What inspired me to start again was this video: http://www.pp.dk/index.php?page=gallery&cat=14&id=174 (Danish, English subtitles)

Found it researching on my favorite furniture architect, Hans Wegner, and just loved that factory. No fancy machines, no artsy paints or displays. Just skilled men and great furniture.

I like nordic wood; oak, beech, ash, elm, larch, birch. Old, dense pine can be nice as well.
I like strong, simple lines and focus on functionality.
I favor the idea in a pieze of furniture. If i use my old handtools or machines is not so important.

I am on LJ to learn, to give and be inspired. I am looking forward to participate!

Hi and welcome here, smiles.
Here I am, just saw your name on my blog and simply had to pay you a visit.
These days and until new year my shop is down, but I will be happy to invite you there in the new year.
Wonderful video from PP, thank you.
Best thoughts,
