Subject:
Very nice treadle lathe in "War and Peace"

Craig Daymon
>Had "War and Peace" on the TV tonight during dinner. About 30 minutes into the movie, Prince Andre comes in to talk to his father before leaving for war. His father is turning on a very nice looking treadle lathe. Unfortunately, they didn't come in close on his turning, but the lathe was really something and you could see a good bit of detail. I didn't watch enough of it to know if it appears again in the picture.

P.S. I think shops have changed a bit since then as well. Probably fewer woven carpets on the hardwood floors.
