Thanks, Withindale.
I followed your link and we spent a wonderful afternoon in High Wycombe. The museum there has a very comprehensive display of bodging and the chair making industry in general with lots of old film footage. The rest of the museum is well worth a visit, too. My bodging says also encompassed hurdle making, sheep shearing , oxen driving and, of course, mucking out. The main attraction of the job was cookery demonstration and a demonstration of eating it!!!! (spit roast something or other and all the fixins every day!!!!).

About your other link. Donald Swanns' father was Russian, I believe. I used to tune his (Donalds) Blüthner grand in the late '60's, early '70's.

Thanks for the compliment but how do you know? did I blow my cover somehow?
I might be a blOody awful tuner who has pored over and memorized all the tuner forum stuff on the web and just spouted it all back!!!!! :shock: :o :wink: :P :roll:

Yes, you are right. In England a "bodger" used to make chairs out in the forest. Here is a link to an article about the last bodger http://www.stuartking.co.uk/index.php/s ... r-bodgers/ with some pictures. The chairs they made last a very long time./quote]
Thank for link.
I shall tuning of (up) piano, because pins hold tight for a long time. I swear

This one caught my eye, but I'm still trying to fathom out whether he means 'naked' or 'knackered' piano.
