Since 2013, the Tormek Scholarship Award has been given to a senior student, majoring in woodworking or design. The purpose is to shed light on sharpening and to encourage you who aspire to high professional qualifications and want to invest time in your woodwork.
Regardless of whether you are using edge tools in your profession or in your hobby, sharp tools are crucial for the result. We are honoured to see that Tormek has been a part of the process in these creative and challenging projects below!
Congratulations to Kristian Olsen Frandsen, who receives this year’s Tormek Scholarship Award with his table “FiKa”- a piece that combines traditional and contemporary craft techniques. During the last two years, Kristian has studied at Capellagården’s School of craft and design at Öland (Sweden) and he now looks forward to new challenges in his promising career.Read more
