Moroccan Bow Lathe

Dieser Handwerker in Marrakesch stellt Schachfiguren her, aber wie :-) Toll!!!

This young woodturner can be found plying his trade in the medina of old Marrakech. With just one tool (a skew chisel) he turns a chess piece on a bow lathe that would have been a familiar sight in ancient Greece or the Pharaoh,s Egypt.
