Announcement   Luomus is a Finnish word, one of the most beautiful of them. In English 'Luomus' translates into creation, but in my mind the translation does not pay homage to the original word which has more softer and delicate tone in its meaning. Creation can be anything, but 'Luomus' has beauty built in. In my craft I create, but I feel that just creating is not good enough.

I really enjoy this unique handcrafted masterpiece. I ordered mine painted white, so it is fitting nicely to our skandinavian style of decoration. At the same time I ordered custom made back plate which allows me to fix hangboard rigidly to wall keels so I don't have to worry if my gypsum board wall wouldn't be strong enough... Overall quality and finishing was very nice.

I started a new life. I decided to give it a shot and jumped from my day job to fulltime carpenter. I needed more space, so tore down some walls and reorganized my shop (old shop above). Now I can be more effective and serve you great Etsyers!
Just finished routing of the hangboard (my very first etsy-delivery by the way) . Next phase will be painting. Can't wait to see how this will look like fully white...
Isn't there any better way to wait for Christmas than beginning the work for fulfilling an Etsy order? A premium hangboard blank in glue-up so that I can start routing right after Christmas day!

About

An engineer creating functional beauty from wood.

I am an engineer.

I have Doctor's degree on technology.

I love to create.

I have been occasional woodworker for my whole life, but couple of years ago my wise wife asked me that what had happened to my dream of owning my own woodshop. I answered: "Nothing, it is on hold until I retire from my day job at age 65 or so." (in about 30 years) She continued: "But you live now. You should make your dream a reality." I have to admit, that I was puzzled, but from that day on I started to reorganize our two-car-garage in to woodshop and nowadays I spend most of my free time in there creating. This has been the second best decision I have made in my life. (For those of you who are interested, the best decision has been marrying my wife.)

I like to make functional things or things with a purpose out of wood. That is the engineer in me. But before I start making anything, I have to have a vision that the result will be easy on the eye. Therefore I like to call my products with a Finnish word 'Luomus' which stands for creation with a subtle hint of beauty.

When I craft, I challenge myself to engineer all the joinery so that I shall not need any fasteners. By rejecting the idea of using fasteners results into durable products which will last for ages. If eventually I end up using a fastener, it will have a defined, obvious and well engineered purpose.
