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!!!!!
Thank for link.
