there is a drawing by van gogh of a carpenter
what is interesting is that the carpenter's hands are disproportionately huge
it struck me for a few different reasons
looks like he is using a mitre or tenon saw
i will let you look it up
still complain here if you have a link problem

The saw is obviously a Van Gogh saw.
While this may not occur to someone who has spent their lives in the
woodworking shop, some of the best place to learn about old woodworking
techniques is the Art Museum. Some of the old paintings have some very
detail pictures of old wood working tools and old woodworking shops.
Not only can you see how the cut and shaped the wood for furniture, but
from the picture you can get an idea of some of the construction
techniques of building house, carts, and ships.
A decade ago or so some one on this group asked the question about how
long Biscuits have been used in carpentry.
I was surprised at his answer and did not believe it until I went to the
Museum and saw they indeed used biscuits to hold the 3 to 4 thousand of
years old Pharaohs sarcophagi together.
While it is not exactly what you mentioned you can find some pictures here
If you search Google for
"carpenters in the paintings"
It will turn many paintings.
However they are not the ones I remember.
What complaints? What am I missing? Any complaints I see are if the link
doesn't work, otherwise, post a damn link already and fuck what anyone
else complains about. Nobody is forcing them to open a link.
just like doctors and lawyers
but apparently he did give up but maybe later
his real problem wasn't lack of skills but lack of sales
although the skills were lacking unless you own one of his works
then they are masterpieces
there was one on sale on ebay
maybe it is one and the same
