I saw this video on americanwoodworker.com and I’m sure some of you will enjoy it. Its from the 1920’s, silent film in sweden on making woodon clogs before power tools were around. Very cool!

If anyone can translate the text, I’d be very interested to see what it says. I’m guessing its about the tools and techniques they use and maybe how much time they spend on different tasks. Can anyone translate swedish? lol
