“I know that I am mortal by nature, and ephemeral; but when I trace at
my pleasure the windings to and fro of the heavenly bodies I no longer
touch the earth with my feet: I stand in the presence of Zeus himself
and take my fill of ambrosia”
― Ptolemy’s Almagest
Grimbergs is a Cabinetmaker/Woodworker located in south Sweden. STYGN ( Swedish for stitches) is a wooden bench and a stool, that has a wool made pad stitched on top of it. The two pieces are inspired from the Scandinavian nature.
Found this old piece of timber in the garden. I restored it and did my first ever proper bit of old school joinery. I only had a saw, tape measure and a chisel to work with so it’s a little rough around the edges but I’m very happy with it. Some genius came up with this in the past in order to join massive logs together to be used to build huge sea worthy battle ships. They didn’t have the luxury of working with metal back then so they had to get creative.
