Rattan Splitter


On the way back from Kampot we stopped at a small rattan factory in the village of Veal Rinh. Really great place, and the factory buys raw material from several of the communities that I am working with. I was especially taken by the rattan splitting machine. Noisy, smoky, and a bit clunky, but it's a beatiful piece of equipment and it certainly does the job. [NOTE: You can download a high resolution image of this noble machine here. Lovely background for the desktop].
