Welcome to my Blog! 

Today we face an issue that I love: the Design phase . 

As you may have read in the page where I present myself , I am a Designer . 

For this I decided to take this path. 

Beyond the passion I have for the Wood, I needed to know more about projecting

I believe is crucial, for a woodworker or a hobbyist , doing at least a sketch before starting to work with hammers, saws and planers. 

As I explained in previous articles (especially in that related to the wood cut) that of Woodworker is a job that requires the utmost attention to measures

I’m talking about millimeters precision. 

Sometimes even tenths of a millimeter

For this reason I believe that it’s necessary to make at least a rough skecth with measures and forms of our object. 

I’m not saying that anyone who works with wood have to be a designer, but often those who approach this type of work has got a lot of creativity and constructive skills . 

Certainly the dexterity and the ability to build object in mind, even before you realize it, is frequent in Woodworkers , but, except in rare cases, are acquired through years of experience.

Welcome in my Blog!
As you may have already figured out the previous articles, I am a lover of the romantic side of the joinery .
The dusty atmosphere of the traditional lab, the workbench  full of tools consumed by use, the wood chips on the floor.
90% of people who comes in this world  has in mind that picture of the old woodworker working in his dusty shop.
Now close your eyes for a moment and re-create this in your mind.
Zoom in slowly on the bench leaving in the background our craftsman who, very concentrated, is sawing a cherry plank.
Look carefully. 


Welcome back on my Blog! 

With this article you’ll begin the practical work

In fact at the end of the post you will be able to know the tools and methods of wood cutting most common that are carried out in Woodworking . 

As soon as you finish reading this post you have to begin to practice in cutting boards, planks, and panels if you want to have good results. 

The practice is essential! 

When one starts from a semi-finished product ,  cutting is one of the first operations for the realization of a wooden object. 

After choosing the species or artificial wood best suited to your project, in fact, you will need to prepare the pieces to be assembled. 

Of course, before you start cutting you must already have in mind all the sizes and shapes of the pieces that you need. 

And you also got to know how to joint it

After that, it’s time to decide the cutting mode.
