I was looking for a simple way to describe woodworking and I found myself glancing the wiki page for it. The pictures on the side were intriguing. Particularly one showing one (two?) gentlemen turning some wood.
The caption I did not find particularly helpful as it more described what they were making more than how they were doing it.
Damascene woodworkers turning wood for mashrabia and hookahs, 19th century.
We can see the turner using his left hand and foot to hold the blade against some sort of tool rest (or the frame of the turning box). It appears his right hand is holding something like a bow which I will assume is what is literally turning the wood.
The other man is supervising as best I can tell.
What are the tools being used to turn here? Does the process have a special name in this context or is it simply a form of traditional turning?
