Anton left his home at Ronningen at an early age and went to Trondheim. He became an apprentice at the Nidaros Cathedral where he worked with a lot of praiseworthy artisans and learned woodcarving. He was said to have been a "clever" carver and skilled cabinetmaker.

He married Alexandra Marie Larsonon 28 May 1909 they, with their family, left for America and settled at Duluth, Minnesota. Anton went into the furniture business making beautiful carved and inlaid furniture.

I have found that Anton carved the coronation chairs that where use On 22 June 1906, for King Haakon and Queen of Norway. Anton made replica of the chairs in Norway and assembled them in the USA. One is on display at the Norwegian-American Museum in Decorah, Iowa.
