Amund Dietzel, tattoo artist built this work station by hand. It was auctioned off recently by Christy’s. I wonder if sold to a tattoo enthusiast?

I remember Henry Goldfield raving about this cabinet and explaining to me how Dietzel probably went about cutting those rounded edges.

Some images from “The Tattoo Historian” a zine put out by Lyle Tuttle:

You can just make out the work table behind these photos of Tatts Thomas and Amund Dietzle. The color photo comes from the book about Dieztle, “These Old Blue Arms” which I recently bought and can’t wait to read.

I often find myself dreaming about furniture design and wishing that I had my own little wood shop.
