Location: Denmark

I was born in 68.
Educated as building Architect from the Royal Danish Academi of fine arts Copenhagen and Constructing Architect from BTH, where I later became principal.
I am now retired due to a discus prolaps in my neck, and a bad operation... wich is ofcourse not wonderful, but has given me more time to take up the wood (life is what we make it).
Now retired due to health, and this have, due to periods of strong pain some big limitations (and natural daily pauses).
And a big child...
I love to use my hands, and to see what they can do!
I draw, paint, photographs, and have a soft spot for tools (too soft).
I have a wonderful workshop now, a studio, workshop, man cave, breathing space or whatever to call it, and it brings me plenty of life.

Hi guys,
Thank you for the warm welcome.
I want to set up a good workshop now, make me some jigs, and start to grab the wood more as I have wished for many years.
I’m not all good in my health after a operation (that was not all sucess), so I can’t works so much, but since I love the smell of saw dust, and to see wood come to life, I will spend the time possible in my little toolshop.
