Workbenches in Denmark

On a trip to Copenhagen this past August we spent a day visiting Frilandsmuseet, the Open Air Museum, just outside the city. It’s one of the largest open air museums in the world, featuring rural buildings from 1650-1950. It is a part of the Danish National Museum, and is free. Here’s one of the uber-cool buildings – part barn, part house.

Whilst exploring the buildings, I came across a couple of woodworking workshops – here are some pictures. Most of the photos come from a building circa early 1800’s where craftsmen made baskets, wooden tools and barrel hoops. Many of the photos show European-style workbenches.
