This is how we make a chest in Norway.
“Chest site:”http://rukkedalen.com/kiste.html

The scollsaw work is not so easy to see.
This was my first detailed work with my new scrollsaw Excalibur.

I have tried Intarsia too. I see I do need some more practic.
Thats what I hope to learn on my trip next year.

Did you look at the site for the rest of the pictures Dave?
I am raveling through next year in June. Where are you?

The painting is done by my wife Randy. Unfortunately Rosemaling seems to be out here in Norway. So we are looking for something else to do now. Kentucy is that on the route from TN to WV?

Steinar (og Anna Maria)

Den var en vakker kiste! Takk for den. (I hope my grammar/spelling was ok. It’s been a long time. :))

It’s too bad to hear that Rosemaling is going “out” in Norway, for it seems, at least among us Americans who are of Norwegian descent, to be one of those things that will forever be associated with our Norwegian heritage, much like apple pie and baseball are to Americans. Then again, apple pie and baseball have waned in popularity here. Nonetheless, it is still very beautiful. Great work.

Hilsen,
Slooper

My apologies. I meant (Steinar and Randy.) Not sure where I came up with Anna Maria. I think I was traversing your website and saw the name. ?

Very beautiful work Steinar and Randy. Eventually rosemaling will be popular again in time. We are just going through a “funkis” period right now. Maybe the American tourists would like something with rosemaling that can be flat packed and not too heavy so it would be easy for them to take it home in their suitcases.
