This page is intended to show some objects from the family. The objects are spread around the family. It would be fun to be able to show other things that you might have. Please send me a picture with some text! I rescued my grand fathers wooden hand planes just before they was about to burn up in the bonfire.

Lars-Börje tells: ”It’s said that John made two buffets, one to his wife, Sigrid, and one to his mother, Severina.Severina’s buffet was picked up in Ängarna (the small house) in the end of the 70’s on demand by Sven-Erik. At that time, the buffet was partly sawed in pieces and the upper piece was placed in the barn. The original glass with facets is now with new mirroring surface. Sigrid’s buffet was put in the workshop, in Blixtorp, as cabinet. The both buffetts has been painted (probably with mahogny imitation or similar) but this was badly hurt and couldn’t be saved. Both of them are now “wood coloured”. The both buffets are nearly identical.”
