Working with Hands - James E. Price

  Heritage Day of the Southern Missouri Ozarks 1 of 3  

Every June, Ozark National Scenic Riverways celebrates the heritage of the people who still occupy the hills and hollows of the southern Missouri Ozarks.



The picture story below is from the 2016 event. There was lots of unplugged woodworking demonstrated as well as various other aspects of the traditional Ozark lifeway. Perhaps you will enjoy seeing a few photos from the event.

Russ Runge and worked on making a reproduction of an 18th-Century
baby cradle. These are some of the tools we used.

This is a photo of Russ using a jack plane fitted with a cheater
fence to cut the angle on the edge of one of the cradle side boards.

Spokeshaves were used lots to smooth various contours on the cradle boards.

This is a photo of Russ using a Gage smooth plane on
the top margin of one of the cradle sides.

The original cradle that we copied is in the background beyond the bench.
