    Just to remind me that my skills have a very long way to go.

    I need to see if I can find a good used stump on eBay.

    I love watching these vintage videos, I love the way they dress, as if they were going to the office for their professional careers.

    Thanks for the link Gregg.

    Most impressive for me is his knife holding techniques. The way he uses both of his hands on the knife for controlling the inside curve cuts (around 1:19), as well as using his leg to brace the knife when thinning the handle. There is probably much to learn in this video with careful observation. Very cool.

    There appears to be a very clever edit in the video at 0:27 where the roughing process pops ahead to a shape resembling a spoon.

    I’ve seen them before and they are good.
    The skill level is something to dream of 🙂

    If anyone is curious about the swedish texts just let me know and I’ll translate them for you 😉

    Now – time to build something!

    Fortunately this knowledge hasn’t all been lost yet. If you are interested in Swedish carving look up Wille and Jögge Sundqvist.

    “Swedish Carving Techniques” by Wille Sundqvist is available again in an English language edition after being out of print for a long time. Country Workshops has it in stock:

    The video was very grainy on the first one but it looked to me like the guy was missing a portion of his left thumb…. Scars of experience. I have a few of those myself. I do have all my fingers though. Great stuff though! Thanks for posting all of these videos.
