Freienfels was uncommonly picture-heavy - as usual, we stood together with a few friends, one of them a woodworker. Who was in need of a few nice pictures of his equipment and himself while working... so I took the opportunity, brought my camera, and had a lot of fun documenting different woodworking techniques.
Working with a drawknife...
there's a very special kind of beauty to really sharp tools doing their thing with wood.
There also were axes, protected by sheaths made after a find from Haithabu...
... and irons of different sizes and shapes for finishing troughs.
Of course there were also a few photos that I did not shoot myself, such as this one - spinning on my bench with distaff-holder, in front of my trusty little market stall.
And a closer look at the table with goods:
I did a lot of spinning this weekend, trying out a theory regarding spindle whorls. Added bonus for this? A very special photo - the light and shadows of spinning!
