  5. In the basement I’ve got a full set of woodworkers chisels my father left me. Problem is I never got into woodworking like that and I don’t know what to do with them. My back issues directly relate to problems standing for any length of time so I don’t think I’m going to start.
    I just don’t want my goddam brother-in-law to get them.

      I have a shitload of chisels and handtools my uncle left to me, he brought them over from Switzerland where the family used to own a construction business. They belonged to his father and grandfather. I’ve used them in my carpentry and log work , I still keep them razor sharp, some are well over 100 yrs old, many from Sweden and France. My uncle used to carve staircases, wish I could have learned more from him.
      For any of you that use chisels/planes, look up “scary sharp”, you’ll never use a dull chisel again. I use a block of polished marble to mount my paper sheets to (a counter top scrap), and use a roller guide to hold the chisel/planer blade, works like a charm.

    I say it is a gripping beast fireplace mantle. That’s just the viking blood in me talking.

    One can only dream to be that lucky to work with wood and love it as much as this man.

    You know…I sometimes look at my leatherwork and think that I turn out some pretty nice looking stuff…

    Then I see REAL craftsmen, and I realize just how much I DON’T know…

      Apples and oranges, Brother.

      A few months ago I thought I’d try to get into leatherworking as a hobby but mostly to learn something that might come in handy someday. But me being me, I bought some books on the subject and saw that it wasn’t just poking holes in leather and stitching it up. There’s a LOT of work that goes into that. Plus, when you consider that I have absolutely no artistic skills whatsoever…..
      I’d rather let you do the work and I’ll pay you for it.

    I am visiting Norway from the US. I am a wood Carver and have carved a replica inspired by the portal from the 12th century stavkirke. I would love to meet you while I am here in Norway. Tim Holland

    Your work is beautiful. I enjoy working with wood. Took a class in college on carving.
