After felling a suitable tree, the bodger would cut the tree into billets, approximately the length of a chair leg. Using the side-axe, he would roughly shape the pieces into chair legs. The finishing stage was turning the leg with the pole lathe (the pole lathe was made on site).



A bodger commonly camped in the open woods in a "bodger's hovel" or basic "lean-to"-type shelter constructed of forest-floor lengths suitable for use as poles lashed, likely with twine, together to form a simple triangular frame for a waterproof thatch roof.Chairs were made and parts turned in all parts of the UK before the semi industrialised production of High Wycombe.As well recorded in Cotton the English Regional Chair Bodgers also sold their waste product as kindling, or as exceptionally durable woven-baskets.Rockall’s bodging tradition was captured on film shortly after he died in 1962.
