Stacks of oak – Atelier Espenaer

Stacks of oak

Stacks of oak pieces

These small oak pieces, here pictured in our atelier last Friday, now hopefully adore the homes of the many workshop participants at last weekend’s Ambacht in Beeld Festival in De Hallen Amsterdam. Some of them were more successful than others in making something out of it. 🙂

The skill of improvising

Improvising with available stock
As a woodworker you are often confronted with practical problems that you need to solve at the spot. Recently it happened that we needed a piece of a particular thickness, but we soon figured we hadn’t any stock left that was thick enough. We didn’t have time to go back to the lumberyard, so we improvised by laminating thinner stock to create a piece that was thick enough for the purpose. This time we could permit ourselves to go this way, because this particular piece would not be in sight.
