Karson, thats a great insight to the war days. Many of those skills are still used today. The pattern makers do a great job even in modern times. Did you notice the chickens leaving the barn in a hurry. I wonder what happened there.

Interesting Karson.

But I was put off by the copy beneath the video window:”...film that documents the life of a woodworker circa 1940. Produced before the start of World War II…”

Germany invaded Poland September 1st, 1939. Britain declared war on Germany Sep 3, 1939 followed by Australia and New Zealand September 3, and Canada September 10, 1939. The USA was drawn into the war September 7, 1942 after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour.

Some historians would propose that the second world war started in Asia in 1937 as the Second Sino-Japanese War which was a result of Japan’s expansion into mainland Asia.

interesting how it still relates to today.
I was especially intrigued by the discussion of craftsmen having a hard time making a business due to the low costs of the factory created products.

Seeing all those handsaws and hammers…I bet woodworkers back then were some of the best arm wrestlers in the country!

you mention the handsaws etc… as I think of my time here at LJ.com, I have seen an increase in the use of manual tools vs power tools in a lot of projects/discussions. A sign of our times, I guess, perhaps out of necessity or nostalgia, or perhaps we are changing our ways from the “now” generation to one of quality and appreciation.

Good one, Karson.

Don, I feel I must apologize for my countrymen. It seems that many people here have forgotten history. We also tend to see history only as it relates to ourselves. Some of us haven’t forgotten that the Commonwealth nations had been in the war over 2 years when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on 7 December, 1941. On that date, my uncle Hank was stationed in the Phillipines. He died on the Battan Death March. I never met him but his memory was kept alive.

I don’t so much think the U.S. has forgotten history. It’s more like we think it revolves around us, which is a big part of our problems these days. Great post Karson and thanks.

Thanks guys and gals for the comments. It also shows the number of people on a project were More than might be used today.

But then again I’ve not been around a lot of building.

Using the handsaw to cut the braces between joists was an interesting thing. The handsaw would be easier than using a table or skill saw.

Yup Chip. I read a joke. “How many American’s does it take to screw in a light bulb. One. They stand and hold the light bulb and the earth revolves around them.” Before I get blasted, I have an Amerikanski passport too.

Karson, that was really fascinating—the cutting of braces. Brilliant, I think, actually. Pretty darned quick.
