fantastic old Swedish woodworking film

Clogmaking, spooncarving and chairmaking all with consumate skill and simple tools.

I have known of this great film on Swedish TV channel for a long time and posted links before  but I just discovered how to embed it here. Hope you enjoy. I could watch it a hundred times. The spooncarver is superb, the clogmakers bench was the inspiration behind by bowlmate design for a bowlcarving bench and I particularly love the work environment of the chairmakers in the last section.

    Thanks for posting Robin that was excellent. Could you tell me the name of the tool used after the auger at around 3mins. Looks very handy.
