Carpenter's treasure

July 13, 2016 Koivisto 3 Comments


When we were exploring the oldest building of the farm, we found a lot of wood. For our surprise among with firewood were also these beautiful wooden treasures. Furniture from 1800's, old wood working tools and some small handmade products like a walking stick, coat hangers and decorational parts from old furniture. We are planning to restore them. Some of them require more work, but for example the rocking chair above needs only a little bit new paint plus it's really cozy to sit. Hopefully we will see many of them in our home and in use again after so many decades.
This gorgeous table is going to be in our dining room with the chairs. We will start to work with them pretty soon, so stay tuned!
Many of the things at the farm might be made with these planes. The people from the past knew how to work with wood.

This wooden churn for butter making is from the 1905. We needed to google the brand to figure out for what this strange machine was used. The churn has been definetily in use, because it has been once repaired. The technics are looking pretty cool and are still working. Maybe some day we will test it, when we need lots and lots of butter.
This old desk chair is probably from the beginning of 1900's. The turnable function is made with massive wooden spiral. Unfortunately some little details from the upper part are missing, still the chair is a charming piece from the past.
Also the ladybug fell in love with the chair and the old leather. Old furniture has such a characteristics and that's why we want to have these beautys back in use. We like the idea, that the founders of the farm were maybe sitting on the same chairs and eating from the same table, that we'll be using. If they know our plans somehow, we hope that they are cheering us and smiling for us.
