1. When did you first start working with wood?
I started working as a woodworker at the age of 16.

The best advice was to do what you love and success will follow.
3. What are the 5 most important tools in your workshop and why?
4. What most inspires you about wood and about your work?
That every piece of wood is unique and special in a beautiful way.
5. What is the first wooden item you have ever made? Please let us about how it came about
The first thing I made out of wood was a bedside table cabinet.
6. When did you start your journey as a woodworker/carpenter?
I started as a woodworker 9 years ago.
7. Can you tell us about the products you make?
I mainly produce individual pictures print on wood. It’s different from normal wood deco and also to a normal frame.
8. What are the projects you are most proud of?
The project which I‘m the proudest of was my graduation project - a wooden bed alongside side cabinets. Makes me happy thinking about it.
9.What is the most unusual use of wood in your studio?
My favorite has to be my jacuzzi wooden frame project.
The stone wall was really an obstacle. Each block of wood individually adapted to the stone. This was indeed a challenge to make, but it was fun to build something so individual!
I decided on thermally treated pine as the type of wood to use here. The warm color of the wood feels like a perfect match with the Jacuzzi
10. What is the most inspiring quote that always motivates you?
Don't be afraid - just start!
Woodworking is amazing!
