Blogg / A Hard Slojd Life


14 augusti 2010

It is summer, and time to mow all the high grass around the house. A couple of years ago I made my own scythe. It is really inspiring to be able to make something so useful and custom-make it to suit yourself. It is satisfying to feel how good it works.

I have used the scythe for 3-4 years now but the details are still not finished!

Blade by Mattias Helje.

It takes a while to learn to mow with a scythe. I had the opportunity to get some good advice on how to adjust the blade etc., and also how to mow, by Janne Eliasson from Fågelsjö. Janne got his first scythe when he was 7 years old and has made several scythes for himself. He has great skills and knowledge about traditional woodworking. Always generous in everything he does. So a big thanks to him!

Sometimes when you are mowing grass with a scythe you find a mouse nest hidden under all the tall grass. They are cute while they are small, sleeping so peacefully together.
