« Part 45: Gus Baumann with the Spark of Wooden Puppets Part 46 of Historic Woodworker Videos series no next part

Because we are all cut off from relatives this Thanksgiving, I thought I would share a short tribute video on the ideal woodworking experience where one could thrive on fellowship, honesty, and craftsmanship. It is the kind of life-story that one would share at the communal meal. I hope you enjoy.

I believe that experience was best captured by Walter Rose in his memoir on the Village Carpenter. So, my video is my illustration of woodworking in a small village long ago – based on Mr. Rose memoir.

Great video! I enjoyed it all, but was most impressed with the workings of the water powered mill. The actual construction of the gears and cogs wasvery interesting. I will soon be watching more of your video posts. Thanks!
