I found this interesting, it's a large draw knife anchored at one end so it can swivel to cut the curves on clogs. The slot is for the clog blank.
This looks like a pit saw arrangement above ground. There were lots of huge two man saws, see below.
This spinning wheel was actually is actually a treadle powered sharpening wheel. The whole thing is mounted on a hand cart and he must have wheeled this door to door.
This shop seemed to specialise in veneered work with a nice chess table on display.
Some of the large pile of walnut veneer on one of the shelves.
A saw clamped up ready for sharpening.
A lovely example of a book or nipping press, with a 3" diameter wooden screw.
The glaziers shop, this time with a leg vice.
A metal workers shop again with a leg vice. It was interesting that of the dozen or so bench on show only one had a tail vice. I don't find much use for them myself either.
Upstairs was a toy museum and even here there were plenty of woodworking trades on show. Here is a book binders with the edge trimmings from completed books.
And just when I thought the woodworking experience was over I spotted some old woodworking machines in the farm machinery display outside. A pair of old band saws from the 1850's.
An extremely solid surface planer.
A huge disc sander.
and finally a hand cranked grinding wheel. So all in all a great morning! Needless to say if you ever find yourself in the area I would highly recommend a visit.
