Carved Bowls with Bengt Lidstrom

Thanks to Drew Langsner for posting this excellent video on Swedish bowl making (and to Peter Follansbee for mentioning its existence!)


  1. That's a great one, Eric. My copy is VHS! Thanks for posting.

    1. Glad to hear this has been out for a while, also glad it is more available now that it is on line. Hope your academic year and carving is finishing up nicely. I had a great weekend in Maine at Lie Nielsen working with Peter Follansbee on spoons (he knows all about your work, and respects it a lot. Says he wants one of your bowls, but they sell too fast!) He is starting to carve ale geese! I will write more soon about the weekend, but learned a lot.

    2. I'm envious of your weekend with Peter. Glad it went well for you. I'm looking forward to seeing some of Peter's ale geese. They are sure to be inspiring. Looking forward to hearing what insights you might have gained while in Maine.
