Drinking Flasks, Part 2
I was reminded recently of a YouTube video I found at one point concerning a traditional Romanian drinking flask manufacture. A gentleman by the name of Ion Constantin demonstrates the construction of a wooden flask on a pole lathe which is very similar to the flask from my original Drinking Flasks post, minus the legs, which leads me to wonder if wooden drinking flasks were more common in period than what we give them credit. It is also possible that the wooden flask falls into that category of "unique to that culture" which happens quite frequently as well. In either case, it's a fascinating line of research, if somewhat limited in information.
