Woodworks - custom made furniture and more




Another praise of working with wood


Over many years I am proud to have assembled most of the essential tools for the business. And it is a challenge to achieve what ever needs to be done with just that cast of tools. My workshop is small but I love to organize it to the very demands of a project at hand. For me working with wood is highly rewarding. I love the living material, reliable in its reactions to what one is doing to it - it's very aroma melding in the atmosphere of the workshop.


I especially remember the astonishing smell of american walnut. I had bought 35 mm slabs of a big old trunk with bark still on it. While cutting them down the saw set free a host of aromas. It smelled of soil and farm animals and what not else.
