Woodworking from Sweden in 1923!

The attached video from YouTube features woodworking from 1923. Filmed in Sweden it captures clog and spoon making in addition to the construction of a chair. All the men shown are old in this video so they all would have been born in the mid to late nineteenth century. Whilst I don't read Swedish it looks as though the film was made to capture fading trades. It really is a fantastic glimpse into the recent past. I don't know the origin of the video I have embedded the YouTube for interest.

A Gift

Two things in this post. A gift from a colleague a handheld drill that was destined for the bin. These are really useful for small drill bits. I have found that the newer cordless drills with keyless Chuck can't manage very small drill bits. The other thing is this is a test post from an android phone using the WordPress app. The first post to this blog from a phone.
