    To some, artwork happens with a brush, film, chisel, or maybe just imagination. Their [all of us] concept has limits, purely from lack of exposure.
    Well, here is proof that art is possible via angle grinder and correctly used abrasives.
    But the real energy is NOT in the implement used, but who wields it; through deft hand and sharp eye.

    Easy. Just write a description and appraisal better then mine

    We've admired Tuomas's skill, hand guided at that, for quite awhile.

    Add a comment to the video. No matter what, just something that YouTube doesn't consider as a spam, otherwise it will be automaticly filtered. ( Links, etc ) https://youtu.be/ZxR-sRFAzYw Video behind the link.
    Winner will be choosed with raffle, First comment gets a ticket number one, second number two... And so on.

    Comment doesn't need to be positive, of course it would be weird if one that hate's it would be winner. But, that's possible too.

    Oh, I HATE it alright. That being how much effort it would take for me to approximate it, let alone copy.
    Same time though, clearly need to upgrade my wheel selections.

    Grinder wheels sure have changed since i made my first cuts.
    These new ones are lighter to use, when you only need to
    guide grinder, without need to push it at all.

    I got some new wheels for to be tested. Flexible "hard" grinding wheels. Those are like grinding with flap wheel, but lasts much longer.
    Video about making the stand comes after holidays, heat treating the anvil is included to that same video too. I cut it out from this, because its actually somewhat long process.

    Abrasives in general like belts are better, but wheels certainly have evolved; in both shaping and finishing grades. Your videos running at normal speed, ideal proof, and not on simple low carbon but far tougher steels.

    Once that's painted, wondering percentage of people would not believe this is hand made, or produced by a private shop.
    I'd feel sorry for them, but it'd be a lost cause.
