Woodworking from Sweden in 1923!

Home/Carving, Tools and Jigs, Woodworking/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.
