Still gathering old images of tools, occupations, and craftsmen. Now I just need time to edit and post them in a sensible way. To kick off this series, it’s a wood turner and his lathe from the early 15th century (German). I think the artist may have neglected to show the tool rest here.
This one goes out to Kiko, Mick, and Veloja for their recent enthusiasm for the foot-powered lathe.
