Swedish Wagon Wheel Maker

One of the site’s regulars (Frank) pointed me to this fascinating video from 1932 of a Swedish Wagon Wheel Maker. It is old (obviously), jumpy (equally obviously) and really interesting to see how it used to be done!

I couldn’t figure out how to embed the video here, so jump across to their site and see some real woodworking practices from yesteryear!
