|A traditional shaving horse (left). This is a design which has been used for centuries, if not millennia. It would often be used to produce items in woodland clearings.|
|A traditional pole lathe (left), a machine for turning wood. It is operated by a wooden treadle. The design is possibly 3000 years old.|
|The lathe revolves while the
operator guides a sharp metal tool such as a chisel along the object and in so doing
creates the desired finished shape.
Note that these tools for shaping and working wood, are themselves made of wood.
