I have to share this with you all!
The other day I had a visitor in my new workshop, a special guy that contacted me here on LJ and it show out that he is living just around the corner here in Copenhagen.
His name is David and his profile here is PaulsenbyHand I have asked him to post some of his wonderful projects soon and will try push him to do so (do you hear me David).
So my life has been quite chaotic lately, but we managed to find room for a beer here and to look at and touch some tools, smiles.
David brought me a gift!
He had told me that he had a special thing for me, and so I was really excited to see what it could be, and trust me I was more than happy!
It’s a Millers Falls.
This makes it special.
It’s in mint condition, think it has never been used.
This makes it more special.
Look at that cool engraving.
Even more special.
In the original box.
More than special.
But this is what really makes the roof go up!
The text says:

My ohhh, this is so amazing!
I love it!
I think that this a priceless piece of history that David has offered me, and I feel so honored and happy.
David is a wonderful guy, so I truly enjoyed his visit and feel confident that this will not be the last, and for now I just look forward to come and visit him in his workshop soon.
Thank you David,
The best of my thoughts,
