Thomas, I love your cave in the attic!! Your tools are displayed very nicely and there looks to be some very nice ones. Dare I be jealous? I like the pistol too!! I think so often how lucky I am to have the workshop I do. I have many windows for light, lots of space, so much to be thankful for. I think about you working in the attic. Every piece of wood must be carried up the steps and then the sawdust and shavings must be carried down the steps. For certain you must love what you do. I hope one day I can come to see it in person.

Nice setup.
I love those axes and the gun.
The skylight with lathe set up is especially sweet.
Good job man

Hi my dear Napoleon,
That is wonderful, so happy for you that it has become a reality.
There are several things that capture my eyes;
The new lathe and the extension, wonderful.
The wall covered with wood and the door also, wonderful.
The table from your grandmother so sweet.
The pistols, my ohhh you are a pirate not a viking.
The little vintage hand drill on the wall.
But most of all the old Stanley on the shelf right there in the light, next to those beautiful bronce planes and then to the right that old moulding plane, this truely touch my heart.
I have in my workshop a gift for you, I think you know what, and as soon as I am back to life again I will come and give it to you, and take some pictures for you. (I’m running low these days as you know).
A big warm congratulation,

Hi Napoleon, Nice & tidy.

how long it took you to clean everything for the photo? Lol

PS, we both share a common problem: No horizontal ceiling, like so:

I have my brain already burned, so I look forward to your ideas.

Oh my what a nice little attic shop with cathedral ceilings. I love your collection of planes, do AI see a #62 on the left side there?? And is that a Hormec grinder. Very nice. I like the touch of the tongue and groove paneling on the wall. I am very happy for you.

Thanks for sharing your shop with us.

And Mads, thanks for helping Napoleon!!

Great shop, wonderful tools, but most of all a fabulous Danish woodworker has a place that he can
enjoy just being himself and share with rhykenologists like Mafe who will come bearing a gift. I
like the way you have made it yours. Thank you for sharing.

Lovely workshop, almost too nice to use as a shop. I wish that mine look even have that nice. Love the broad axe, do you actually use it?
