Greatest Hits: ‘The Woodworker’ Vo-Tech Video from Pre-WWII
Submitted by: TheFederalistParty
While trolling YouTube , we came across this classic vocational-education film that documents the life of a woodworker circa 1940. Produced before the start of World War II, and written by a faculty member at Iowa State College, the film is part of the “Your Life Work” series.
As you would imagine, the film is quite dated in content, but it still gives a neat overview of how plywood is made (or at least was made) and how certain techniques in the woodworking and carpentry trades were accomplished before portable power tools and air nailers were the norm.
And for those of us who remember this movie when it wasn’t a rerun, there’s a nice dose of nostalgia in it.
