CLOGMAKER'S BENCH AND STOCK-KNIFE

The clogger cuts a shallow groove in which the leather upper will be nailed or gripped. The upper surface of the sole is hollowed to fit the shape of the foot using the hollowing knife. The upper is fitted into the groove on the clog sole and tacked in position. After cutting and stitching, the uppers are pinned to a wooden last to shape them to the wearers' foot. The final stage is the addition of a thin strip of leather welting around the sole. Photographs by courtesy of Hywel Davies, Clogger, Tregaron.
