Saturday's PhotoHunting: Work Tools

While visiting Amsterdam I took a day tour to visit Zaanse Schans to see the windmills.  Included in the tour was this cool demonstration on how those famous wooden Dutch clogs are made.  Here is a photo of the work tools they use to make the shoes.

This cutie did a quick demonstration which was very interesting and fun to watch. :-)

And here are a few examples of the final product. 

Sadly, Gattina has announced that this will be the final week for her Saturday's PhotoHunting meme.  I want to take this time to express my gratitude to Gattina for hosting this wonderful meme and for allowing us to have a forum to share such beautiful photos and creative takes on her weekly themes.  

I have really enjoyed playing and have met so many wonderful bloggers near and far from my participation on Gattina's meme. I'm very sad to see it end, but I will definitely continue to visit Gattina's blog and my other fellow photohunters who I have met here.  

Many thanks to Gattina from Keyhole Pictures.   


  1. Great photos, Kathy. When I was in high school (many years ago), I went on a trip to Amsterdam and bought a pair of these wooden clogs. No idea what happened to them but it's cool to see how they are made.

    Sad to see PhotoHunt end!

    Hope you have a great weekend.

    1. Hi Annie, how fun that you went to Amsterdam in high school. I remember owning a pair of wooden clogs too. But I got my pair from Tijuana Mexico. I remember wearing it a lot too. :) Wooden clogs, however, would totally not fly with my feet now. lol!

      Yes, it's sad to see PhotoHunt end.

      Have a great weekend too!

  2. Great selection of tools ! I know them too, as my son and family are living in Amsterdam. Thank you very much I enjoyed the photo hunting too but I think it's time now to stop. Hope to still see you on my blogs !
