Yup, someone sent me that pic when I was doing the same thing...building a laminated prop using handtools for a production of 'Misalliance'.  I don't know how many times folks passing by my bench took the time to point out I was making a 'prop prop'.

Could the Tower be a shot tower (for making shotgun pellets)? I visited one in Hobart Tasmania, the lead forms perfect spheres as it falls into the water tank at the bottom.

I'm kinda thinking the 'tower' is just a flagpole on the roof....

I can't figure out what tool the fellow in the white shirt left of the fellow with the wooden plane is holding...?
Just a weathered light rust/WD40 mix patina.

Looks like a handsaw and a blindmans rule or a ships bevel.

Great photo of prop construction.There wouldn't be an unemployment problem if it still took two guys to build a prop.
