BREN Video Roundup

Medieval Carpentry Techniques

08/30/2018

Like most people, we spend lots of time (way too much time) surfing the web, entranced by various videos. In Video Roundup, we offer some videos from all over the world that we found especially intriguing.

This week’s selections focus on Medieval carpentry techniques. Hand tools indeed!

There's an interesting book by Dennis Riley - "Anglo-Saxon Tools", illustrated by his many reconstructions of Medieval tools from archaeological finds in Britain and northern Europe and some descriptions of their effectiveness in use.

I believe he is also one of the people behind Daegred Tools of Sheffield UK, who sell such tools on ebay.

Despite living in the same city, I have no connection. I did buy an unusual draw-shave based on an English find nd it works well.
