DWFII, Very nice bench, a long time i haven't seen one like this. Most i see have the working space rounded like the ones for jewellers and are far lower in order for the cordwainer to easier bend over his work and thus have more power when stitchinfg. And DWFII, i haven't been around for an eternity, but will soon come up with a new pair of Delos'.

The shoe-trees are made on the basis of the last, partly by hand and partly by machine. But every shoe-tree is made in an artisanal way and thanks to this one ends up with shoe-trees that are different from one foot to the other and respecting your feet specificities. To imagine that they are cheap to make...
