you will lose several hours watching

looking at stuff like this, it is simply amazing how many specialized trades there used to be to provide life's necessities............
gunsmith, cooper, wheelwright, blacksmith, wagonwright, farrier, saddler, weaver..................

    That she is! Pictures (especially from my kinda-crappy cell phone camera) really do not do her justice.

    And just to give you an idea of how big she is, her driving wheels are 5'10" in diameter, same as the height of an average man.

    Good one.  Thanks for posting it.   :thumbup1    We've come a long way since that was filmed but whether we went the right direction seems open to debate.   :coffee
