Another Danish blog on traditional woodworking

One of the kind people who has commented on my blog is Mikkel from Denmark.
We have a couple of times touched upon the subject that there wasn't any woodworking blogs written in Danish.
As a result I started the bloksav blog (which is the Danish name of a mulesaw).

And behold!
Mikkel has resurrected his old blog called Haandkraft. He writes in a very informative language about the projects that he makes. He uses hand tools (though he admits having a chain saw)

I really hope that it will be possible to get just a tiny bit more people engaged in some sort of woodworking, now that it is possible to read about in Danish.
However International the woodworking community may be, there may still be someone out there who find it easier to read a blog in their native language.

  1. I try not to use that chainsaw. I am afraid it will eat my legs if it gets a chance ;-)

  2. Haandkraft is such a nice blog. Even if I only look at the pictures. :)

    Unfortunately it is plagued by the new Photobucket policy.

    1. Hi Sylvain.

      I have never heard of any photobucket policy?

    2. The policy works something like this: "We used to host your images online for free, so you could use them on your blog... but now we just hold them hostage. Pay us unless you want to edit all your past blogposts. Have a nice day"

      It looks something like this: https://haandkraft.blogspot.dk/2012/02/crossbow-quiver-pt1.html

    3. Hi Mikkel

      I have just checked. That is problematic.
      Actually I had seen images or warnings like this before, but I never quite figured out the reason for them.

  5. Agree and inspired totally with the idea of being an old school in the times when everything around is ultra modern. The Danish version of a blog sounds fascinating and I am certainly going to follow all your posts.
