Given his keen interest in woodworking, after making the acquaintance of Tom Eltang Lars Jonsson was invited to visit Tom's workshop. Lars was fascinated by what he was shown there, yet, though the two would from then after often get together for socializing and sailing, it wasn't until chance stepped in that Lars took his first steps towards becoming a pipemaker in his own right. Lars and Tom just happened to be hanging around the workshop when the latter received a call from Per Billhall, another friend, and a fellow artisan, who needed help putting rusticated finishes onto a considerable number of pipes. Could Tom ask Lars to lend a hand? Tom agreed; Lars agreed. And from that first learning experience, the latter well and thoroughly caught the bug. Learning from Tom Eltang led to learning from another of Tom's friends, Hans "Former" Nielsen, and working on the pipes of both the Sara Eltang and Former-Eltang brands, gaining valuable experience and credentials. And so it is that from a combination of good fortune followed up by keen effort that the Danish school has added yet another name to its list of remarkable artisans.
