The topic of our course task is humanity. On this art course, I ended up making a two-metre wooden statue using a chain saw.

Dad’s team built a battery-powered light lifter for Konecranes that can very quickly and handily be ordered to lift all kinds of heavy objects by pushing a button on your mobile. I’m really proud of what my father and his friends have accomplished.
