ANTIQUE WOODWORKING TOOLS
We are offering this once-in-a-lifetime chance at these 19th Century woodworking tools. They all came from the Collection of Ottmar Burkhardt. These were family heirlooms, from the old farm that had been in the family for generations, in the Schwabische Alb. We gringos know this area as the Swabian Jura, the low mountain range of the state of Baden-Wurttenberg,bordered by the Neckar and Danube rivers. The folks here have always been known for their independence, hard work, competence at all things mechanical. Amazingly, as old as these tools are, all of the blades have been kept sharp, and the wood nicely oiled. It was a real pleasure to talk Ottmar out of these, and to offer them here.
