When It Rains
The trouble with working in an outdoor "shop" as I prefer to do in the summer is that it's hard to get much done when it rains. I could buy one of those cheap pop up tents, to keep the sun and rain off, but that just doesn't appeal to me that much. And it's not critical that I can keep working on my little projects day in and out, since they're not making me any money.
So, because I have no pictures and only unedited video of the thing I've been working on the last few days, here is a great video of (I believe) Swedish woodworking in the late twenties: Link This includes a clog maker, spoon carver, and chair makers. They all work with a great deal of efficiency and precision, and with a fairly small tool kit. Enjoy!
