VIDEO: The everyday work of an 89 year old craftswoman
Use it or lose it, as they say. At 89 years of age, this woman sees no reason to stop woodworking, albeit as scary as some of her production processes look.
From branch to sawn and turned billet, piston fit tea caddies are the end result of a series of processes undertaken on some serious looking machinery. After initial machining and roughing steps, turning and finishing is undertaken by the woman’s son who also makes some of his own tools.
