Wonderful capture of an interesting culture, Looks like this is a precise kind of work.
The end results are so beautiful as seen in the previous photo. We don't know how
lucky some of us are to have more modern equipment for doing our tasks. You have given us some great education.

What more can you say about Mulberry paper? I'd love to see this lathe in operation. Like going back in time. I've wondered for years why some parts of the world never seem to catch up with the machines that make work easier, like in the Western World. Do you have any insights on the subject?

Larry, it was fascinating to watch this man doing his work with such an amazing speed!
I found at the internet "instructions" how to make a Chinese umbrella. It gives some insight into the process. I assume that the technique is the same in Burma (neighbouring countries):
