WoodlandsTV - Wood for Building

Making a Dugout Canoe

by WoodlandsTV ~ 12 October, 2016 ~ 17 comments

Artistic woodworker Arthur de Mowbray puts real heart into his craft as he shares his obvious skill and enthusiasm for designing and building a contemporary leisure boat from available timbers. He talks us through the making of `The Mighty Sparrow`, from a fourteen foot long poplar log. Arthur takes traditional boat-building methods and adapts them to suit the lighter, smaller poplar - whilst still using oak off-cuts for specific structural items. From cutting, carving, stretching and stabilising - to `wearing` the beautiful finished boat - Arthur `s respect for the wood and for his craft is clear. http://www.arthurdemowbray.co.uk/dugout-canoes.

How to Make Laths

by WoodlandsTV ~ 27 May, 2015 ~ 13 comments

Here we see how to make traditional handmade wooden laths from Sweet Chestnut - used in lime plastering construction and heritage restoration work. Experts Justin Owen and his sons Jack and Curtis, and friend and colleague Bobby, carry out this skilled craft on the mixed woodland they coppice. Care is taken from the initial selection and cutting of the managed wood through to the stacking and storing of the bundles. The skilful splitting of the wood follows the grain to ensure the durability of each lath and the uneven surface of the laths offers additional grab for the lime plaster.
