What an inspiring film! From tree to window frame with everything in-between!
Some of his wooden planes are works of art themselves.
I also appreciate the French culture of stopping for a well earned glug of vin rouge! Mind you – the last time I did that, I slipped with my knife afterwards and badly cut my finger. Alcohol and sharp tools don’t mix! I see he is missing one finger – maybe he has also suffered post vin rouge accident?!
Great! Thanks for sharing. Incredibly skilled man. Are windows glued-up in France traditionally? I always thought they were just pegged for ease of repair.
I could easily spend a week in his shop just admiring all his tools. The saw sharpening vise for example and all those planes and saws. Even the glue-cracker looks like furniture. He knows every single bump of his grinding wheel by its name. Thanks again.
