Bodging a Job

But not in a bad way! The power of Twitter and Blogging combined resulted in me coming across this video of a Bodger making a child’s top from green timber, using a foot powered lathe (known as a pole lathe), drawknife, a Shave Horse, a few other more historic hand tools, and to my surprise, a Triton Superjaws (the Australian made version what’s more 🙂 ) I was a tiny bit disappointed when I saw a battery powered drill being used for one job – the rest was such a refreshing approach to woodworking (refreshing in it being so traditional) So thanks to @RenaissanceWW and @fwmagazine for spreading the work about Treewright‘s demonstration 🙂  And of course, Treewright for making the video to share with us!
