1993. Life was good. I had time on my hands so I bought some sycamore locally and made this chair. After I built and carved it I scorched it with a blowlamp, rubbed it down, stained it, sealed it with shellac and gave it seven or eight coats of wax.

I love old furniture, really old furniture. The basic design is loosely based on English oak chairs from around 1600 although the girl's face and kingfishers went a bit art nouveau-ish.

It's very heavy and very comfortable and looks totally out of place in the small, modern house we rent these days. :)

Please respect my copyright, thanks.

The jouhikko is a bowed lyre, related to welsh crwth and swedish talharpa, amongst others.

Body is oak, soundboard heat processed birch, bridge, the string extension piece and the neck reinforcement are ash, and the tuning pegs are beech.
Strings are horsehair. I used fir resin I collected myself for them.
The bow is just a nice piece of pine :)

Finish with iron oxide & linenseed oil, and after that a few layers with a mixture of tar, linseed oil and turpentine.

The white string is the melody string played free with fingers, the black ones are drones.

There's a few pieces that need refinement, like the badly designed string attachment in the extension piece. Now changing the tuning of any one string affects all the others too :/ So here I should have sticked more rigidly to historical examples.

The body shape is loosely based on several 19th century examples from the national Museum of Finland.

This was a valentine's day gift for my boyfriend!
Props to my dad for teaching me how to use power tools and how to not cut my hand off while cutting big pieces of wood into smaller ones.
The top of the torch comes off and i filled the inside with candy.
