The Joiner's Shop.......French Oak Roubo Project Day 3

The third day of the French Oak Roubo Project. A day in the Joiner's shop. 16 benches are  underway in the shop of Wyatt Childs and the atmosphere is unique to say the least. It's easy to imagine that it was very much like this in the early days of the industrial revolution. A few machines running to do the heavy lifting part of the work, yet hand tool work is till occurring all around the machines and literally in every corner of the shop. The blend of the sounds is enticing to say the least.

  2. Ron,

    I watched this last night three times. It is incredibly bittersweet for me but I love seeing the guys being so careful but obviously enjoying themselves as well.
