When I was a young lad I came across wood and its magic. I fell in love with its versatility and have since worked with wood in some way. Lately I have integrate metal in my work and discovered how exciting toolmaking can be.
I have tremendous respect for old crafts and are inspired by Swedish country folk style in the 18th and 19th century. In my work the functional aspect usually have a central part. I believe visual appearance and good practical function is required for full satisfaction when using and observing an object. In my work I use classic handtool and traditional woodworking techniques. The touch of the tools are very often visible in my work.
