My little FACTORY:
After my retirement I had to give up my summerhouse with a wonderful big workshop, also my house with a little workshop in the garden, and along with this most of my tools was left when I sold the summer house due to the fact I had a brake down, and simply did not have the energy to start sorting things out, so I choose to leave all behind to the new owners (he was a very happy man he said). Do I regret NO, it was a wonderful chance to start all over in life, also to stop buying cheap tools, and look for quality and history.
I do love old tools, and have during these last two years where I build up my little workshop, collected a good handfull of vintage tools from all over the world, mostely English and Japanese, handplanes are a soft spot – here some of them.
Also Japanese tools became a passion, this for the simplicity but also for the ways of using the body,to focus the energy and use the body as a part of the force and energy.
Since my retirement I had a small basement workshop, but after I moved I had to find a new place.
The place is a old shop in the center of Copenhagen in a lovely area full of life and cafe’s.
So yes life is sweet here in the FACTORY.
1 Me in front of my little workshop I call the FACTORY.
2 This is the location, right in the center of Copenhagen.
3 Inside the shop room.
4 I do other than woodworking so it is also kind of a studio.
5 I made a place out of old windows, in the back room to take a nap, or stay the night.
6 Here a plan drawing of the place.
A drawback is only a chance to advance again…
