Re: Silk Velvet

From the Brigs i've seen the nails are clenched on the rear without an inner layer of fabric. Seems to have worked rather well.

Elm knock down stool

This is a quick stool i made to use at my computer desk as sitting on the edge of the bed was getting tiresome. Made from Elm boards roughly 25mm thick. It all packs flat and will happily support my weight and probably that of another. Took approximately 6 hours and has a little sanding and oiling l...

I haven't done much work on it for a week or two but should be resuming on tuesday. It is roughly 110x65cm made from 22mm Elm boards. Made with a fair...

Re: Inspired by Craig1459 : )

Yes, Jorge seems to have covered the majority of the pitfalls. 'Acceptable' woods include Willow, Elm, Fir and Lime. Research into the actual woods on pavises is scarce and it seems that local makers used local timbers without too much concern for it being the 'right' timber. Tadeas Hajek of Hajek s...

Dog chews work very well :-D

I find the giant ones produce the thickest rawhide in the middle. A quick soak and you can untie them.

Re: Inspired by Craig1459 : )

It varies from maker to maker throughout the 15th century. Some use twisted rawhide like the Castle Tirolo example some use iron wrapped in hide. The Y shaped piece of hide is by far the most common.
