two nice craft slideshows

I have just been sent these two links and thought folks would enjoy them.

First Mike Turnock the last sievemaker, a nice slideshow of all the stages in producing garden sieves from Jon Henley of the Guardian. Amazing to think that a craft like this could survive as a viable business without any subsidy since medieval times and yet could be lost in the 21st century.

Next one of my blog readers sent me this slideshow of steam bending a Haida cedar canoe. It looks a fantastic community event and no doubt is the culmination of a huge amount of work.

    That's an excellent piece produced by the Guardian journalist.He's obviously researched his subject and put together a fine representation of the craftsman's process.Hope he does more features along the same vein, they're really informative.John
