I thought I’d follow up with a simpler process video I recently found that also makes me quite happy. In this one, a man named Robin Wood recreates the techniques used by one George Lailey, who died in 1958 at 89 years old. Robin spent 5 years researching Lailey’s techniques, recreating the very simple, entirely foot-powered lathe (a “pole lathe”), hand-forging all...
