Woodworkers of the past were proud of their craft and their tools, and they were usually more than willing to pose for a picture. As a consequence, there are some really cool old woodworking pictures “out there” for us to enjoy. This is a thread to share them with other LJ members. I’ll start it out, but feel free to post your additions too. As you consider posting, please respect the intent of the thread. Pictures should be vintage and should pertain to woodworking or related trades.

It’s not that old of a photo and its more construction than woodworking, but I took this photo and it has always struck me as being classic and timeless and seemed appropriate

Old lumber mill

This is just a portion of the whole picture, which is huge.

Got it from shorpy.com – tons of old photos and they’re all huge and crystal clear. You can get lost for hours looking at the stuff there.

Colonel Travis,
That’s a shop used to make prosthetics.
Though it wasn’t as old as the pic, I had use of a shop that did that sort of work. It was kinda creepy at first, but the folks who worked there were craftsmen none the less.

Nice link Andy. Bob, I think there was a blog about that picture in the top post on the Lostartspress blog.

I ran across the top picture last just last week. I will be checking the web site that the Colonel posted before days end.
If you are looking for something, just hang in there. It will show up on LJ.
