Shave the man
At Christmas things happen in the workshop, but this year MaFe turned into Gepetto as some of my friends here call me…
What has MaFe been smoking?
No, I’m serious, this year I was called Gepetto and forgot my pipe on several posts, so I think it must have been what triggered this project.
The full story will be blogged at a later time.
But what happened was Shave; he is my little workshop helper, my guardian angel and came just like that into my life, he was never planned but just came out of the blue as a call from the past, and now he is here.
Shave is a hardworking dude, he has a attitude problem against the self-promoted gurus of woodworking, and so he wanted a Roubo workbench to show ‘I can do that’, also he is a hand tool freak, likes to make and restore old tools, latest tool he made is a frame saw from an old coping saw blade.
Shave can have days where his bones made of wood and his joints of metal will not work together so he need to stay low, and so he likes to sit in his favorite pipe and smoke his favorite pipe… thinking deep thoughts and about his favorite friends all over the world.
Shave and I was friends from the moment I finished creating him, even he makes it hard for me now to smoke my favorite pipe without putting his a.. on fire.
Last picture shows the minutes just before he was put to life.
Shave and I wish you all a merry Christmas 2011, a year that seems to end so beautiful and bright.
