Japanese, Russian, Danish teapot lid
life is a miracle

This is a story from a fairytale, to see this go to the blog:

1. The lid being painted.
2. Measures from Russia…
3. Shaping with Japanese spoke shave.
4. On a wrong track.
5. Warp it up.
6. Here we go for Russia…

Yes I try to FU up, so go to the blog, this one takes a story to get

Perhaps this can inspire others to ask and to give.

Best thoughts,

Hi there,
Yes I feel lucky in so many ways, extra lucky when reading all your kind words and thoughts, thank you.
I’m in the middle of a moving here in Copenhagen, trying to keep focused and still live a little.
Soon my daughter and I will be in the new home and life will get back to a rhythm, this will also mean time for woodworking again, all projects here are like in a time capsule, smiles.
Yet in the middle of chaos, things like this happens, the little miracles that gives meaning to the madness called life, the wonderful madness called life.
Thank you all and especially to Alexey for making this story happen.
Best of my thoughts,

-- MAD F, the fanatical rhykenologist and vintage architect. Democraticwoodworking.
