The photo shows a part of the workplace of cooper. The cooper is a master craftsman making tubs, barrels, large beer mugs, wooden basins.

The workplace is located in the Museum of Axe, Ivanovo region, Russia. The main exposition of museum is composed by combat, craft, ritual axes from the 9th to the 20th century. Also in museum there are workplaces for cooper, spoon cutter, Mazyk toys (wooden traditional toy for this territory), cutting of a tree (architectural parts for the house - columns) and other men’s craft. Workshop are worked in our days.

Location: Ivanovo region, Russia.

On the shelves there are tools of the cooper and the old cooperage items. Basically, there are items compiling by little boards and capturing by hoops. At the top left there are tubs hollowing out the trunk of a tree. Modern pickling bowl for cucumbers is visible. It is the brightest on the photo.

The museum saves old crafts. In turn crafts saves rational using of the natural materials. In this place a small hemp is transformed a useful thing for life, or a children's toy.
