The saw maker

Sunday 31 July 2011

It’s a fine thing to see, in this video from the Institute of Back­yard Studies, that you can still have a racing cross cut saw made by hand in Australia. This delightful documentary is one of a series about people carrying on rare trades​—​the others show a shoemaker, a coachbuilder, a milliner, a painter of scrollwork, a dry stone waller, a stonemason, a tinsmith, and a bookbinder.
