Kalle Vikkula  Furniture designer and woodworker. Has some skill at painting as well. Finland.

Many things can be made of wood. This is a copy of Suomi Konepistooli (Suomi SMG) in 70% size (perfect for 8-10 years old kids). The cocking bolt and trigger are functional (with coil springs). I made several for the sons of our employees and family. โ˜บ๏ธ 75 years ago my both grandfathers carried real versions of this with serious intentions (both were infantry officers, and therefore issued with SMGs)

As soon as the glass jar cools down Iโ€™ll be ready to pack this kimchi. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ Napa cabbage, daikon, carrot and a mix of gochugaru, scallions, garlic, ginger, fish sauce and belacan (fermented shrimp paste).

Little Gustavian cushioned footstool finished with blue-green-greyish milkpaint with drybrushed umbra patina. Well, the footstool comes a little short in the cushion department right now, but Iโ€™ll make one soon. ๐Ÿ˜

TV-stands made of surplus parts and offcuts finally finished with Gustavian grey milk paint and light patina.

Salmon ready for the oven. I soaked it in stiff salt water for 12 hrs with these cuts. The stomach cavity is also filled with dill and lemon slices. ๐Ÿ˜‹ Oh yeah! Itโ€™s cut this way because I plan to use it for two different dishes.

Charring onions and ginger for a Tonkotsu broth. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Spaghetti with salmon and pistacchio. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Cabinet base in Louis XV style. This one has no less than 4 species of wood; Alder and birch for the legs, aspen for the apron show sides and pine for the insides of the aprons.

Patch on a pine surface. Notice how the grain continues through the patch. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜

Coeur de filet Provenรงal. My in-laws were OK with my All Hallows Eve cooking. ๐Ÿ˜

Kids discovered the selfie function... ๐Ÿ˜
