Vapensmeden Karmstol Ful a Klumpar
Translated this is "Weaponsmiths Armchair Full of Lumps". The original Vapensmeden Karmstol was designed by Carl Malmsten, I built this chair while attending the school of craft "Capellagarden" while participating in an exchange. The lovely Swedish Ash it is crafted from was felled by the woodworking class including the exchange student Niklas Hansen who was attending the school in California. The tree was from the same island as the school. I never had any trouble with this wood, it was sweet and easy to work.
