In the summer of 2009 Swedish toolmaker Hans Karlsson will be teaching Toolmaking for Woodworkers at Country Workshops.

After Hans Karlsson taught Toolmaking for Woodworkers last summer he stayed at Country Workshops 2 extra weeks and participated as a class member in our ladderback chairmaking workshop. This was an opportunity for Hans to actually use the fine drawknives that he makes for us, and to check out other tool making possibilities.

HANS KARLSSON began blacksmithing as a hobby, mainly doing ornamental work. In 1978 he enrolled in a four year blacksmithing program at Stenebyskolan (Stenby School) in Dalsland (southwest Sweden). The head teacher noticed that Hans was particularly interested in toolmaking, so he developed a special program with that emphasis. Karlsson’s business was set up in 1981. Hans, and his wife Carina, are currently producing over 500 tools, mostly different sizes and styles of woodworkers’ chisels and gouges (including a full set of violin makers’ gouges), but also limited quantities of knife blades, adzes, and the HK drawknives and inshaves for Country Workshops. Hans was awarded a master blacksmith certificate in 1998 from the Swedish handcrafts institute Foretagarnas Riksorganisation. E-mail:
