I rarely put out the word for crowdfunding campaigns. If I did, that would be about 50 percent of my blog entries. But this one is different. I donated to this cause, and I hope you will consider it as well.

From Peter Follansbee: Since Wille Sundqvist passed away in 2018, I have from time to time talked with Jogge about his tools – what will happen to them, etc. It’s a long story but right now the pressing part is that there is an auction in a few days. Ty Thornock has set up a GoFundMe page with the idea that we’ll help Jogge get these tools so he can then do with them what he sees fit. Time is of the essence – if you can help Jogge preserve his father’s incredible legacy, follow the link below. Thank you very much.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Legend.
How much does Jogge need?
Donated! Chris and Peter, thanks so much for getting the word out.
For everyone else – Jögge is the fifth-generation woodworker in his family. Some of these tools were handed down to his father, so this is a very special collection. It’s possible the step-family may be auctioning some of Wille’s pieces as well, so it’s worth donating even if you see the initial goal is met.
A worthy cause. Thanks for the heads-up.
Why are they being auctioned in the first place?
sounds like some kind of Swedish probate/estate tax sale or something.
Thanks for sharing this. Praying Jogge is successful.
I hope there is extra and Jogge can use that to continue to further the craft. Thank you Peter and LAP for sharing!
Thank you for telling everyone. Small amounts by many make for a large final amount. It is wrong that he just does not get to keep them.
I can’t imagine having to buy my father’s tools at auction. Happily donated to the cause and wish him the best of luck.
I am happy to see that the Gofundme raised enough money to secure the tools -> https://pfollansbee.wordpress.com/2021/08/12/thanks-all-around/ – well done everyone!
