Update: theunpaidBill let this in a comment’ “You might be surprised to find that there is a thriving, if small, group of hobbyist craftsmen who work using old-school techniques like those shown here. The capabilities of the hand tools are really quite remarkable and a basic competency isn’t that hard to achieve.”
