Posted by ESC on April 15, 2002

CHAIR BODGER -- "Don Weber, a Welsh chair bodger, or chair maker, worked on a lathe in his Paint Lick (Kentucky) shop last week. Weber trained in the old craft of woodworking when he lived in Great Britain. He needs only period tools…no electricity, nails or screws are used." Lexington (Ky.) Herald-Leader, April 15, 2002.

Anyone know the origin of "bodger"?
