Woodworking videos

Here's a link to a video from Sweden. Its silent black and white film and show craftsmen making wooden shoes, a spoon and a chair. The level of craftsmanship is incredible.

This next link is from Finland and has several videos showing early 20th century wood working. The first one is a dug out canoe.

This one shows working with knives and axes.

In all the films you'll notice some very familiar tools such as Scandinavian blades like the Mora and Puuko as well as Scandinavian style axes. Its amazing how skilled these folks are. They make it look so easy, but then, they've been doing this all their lives. Hope you enjoy them!
