    What was the next rip sawing method? Do you know the progression from the eighteen hundreds to now?


    • Jack Plane says:

      The nineteenth-century isn’t really my purview (well not after January 29th, 1820 at any rate) and I’m not really an aficionado of woodworking either I’m afraid.

      Perhaps someone with a better understanding of the subject could throw some light on matter.

    Powered mills driven by waterwheels, animal wheels, wind, etc. Then came steam followed by electricity. 1820 pretty much starts the Industrial Revolution and woodworkers throughout the “modern” world began to lay down their pitsaws and gain weight.

    Very good drawings. Lots of life in the figures with a confidence in line work and gestures.
