May be you already watched this video.
Even if you did, I believe that it is well worth watching again and the music is wonderful.
It is nice to know that some things are still made the right way (versus the cheap way).
If you do not have experienced a hand stitched rasp, I invite you to buy a Liogier rasp, they are expensive at first but like all quality tools they will last you a lifetime and you will not believe the quality of the cut and finish they provide:

Thanks for posting the link. I had never seen that. What incredible craftsmanship! I was amazed at the level of skill required to get the spacing and depth of cut for each tooth so uniform. The level of craftsmanship in making the rasps is equalled by the craftsmanship shown in some of the other videos linked below the first one. Hand shaping figured table legs is a real art. Personally, I have never cared for the style of cabriole legs or the “claw and ball” style of legs, but I do admire those with the skill to shape wood into such designs.

Thanks for posting the video, Bert. That guy doing the hand stitching has got some serious small motor skills and muscle memory!

Nice craftsmanship. And especially nice to see someone who actually pays attention to detail in his work.
