Some "Hand Crafted" junk is made on a contraption with 10 or more
router spindles, and as many spindles to mount the work. All the work
spindles are geared together, maybe with bicycle chains, and the
(operator/carver/artist) carves one object and gets 9 "copies" at the
same time, more or less the same minus the slack in the chains and
linkages. Like a 3D pantograph, with multiple parts made at once.
Technically it is sort of "Hand Crafted"

Looks to me like burned into the wood with a branding iron, except all
seem to be of the exact same depth. I guess hand crafted could mean
they were clamped into a wood CNC mill by hand?
I had a book on Runes that I gave to a grandson when he was into stuff
like that. Many of the German houses/buildings are framed in Runes.
The book also gives the body positions to simulate Runes.
A MONTH, Pete.
Little 8-year-old girls die annually in China working on the 2nd or 3rd
story of a fireworks building where the really _dangerous_ stuff is done
on the 1st floor (so the supervisors can get out quickly).
Those kids make roughly $0.90 per DAY (before their "expenses" are
deducted by the supervisor) doing the dirtiest, most dangerous work their
country has to offer.

We have the misfortune of having an in-law who has relocated to China and
runs a business there. When questioned about how workers are treated & paid,
his reply is that "at least I make sure the supervisors dont beat my
workers". Nice hey.

Some could. Having done totally hand crafter stuff, you can't
afford what it cost me. What I'd do for a one off item is different
than for a series. Even if I was going to make them all using hand
tools, there comes a point where some kind of batch processing comes
We will drink no whiskey before its nine.
From some contacts in the CNC router industry, the Chinese are cranking
out wood routers in HUGE numbers for sale in the far east. India is
too, but in smaller quantities. They both are supplying kits to be
built in the destination country, using a bunch of tricks like a plywood
foundation that you pour full of a cement to make the work table. My
contact said some of these Chinese outfits are delivering up to 3000
machines a MONTH!
Some of this stuff is being used for architectural panels, decorative
railings and trellises, etc. but certainly a lot of thes sorts of items
Iggy mentions could also be done that way.
