to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

hard core

in the box with small old tools there is this beautiful and elegant shape, I first didn't know what it was actually used for ...

... until yesterday,

I took this old oak beam which on the outside resembles a sponge because of woodworm. The beam is still quite heavy which means the core is still in good condition. The tool - I have no idea how it is called (stripper? sounds a bit awkward with the title of this post) works wonders to scrape off the soft wood .
