If you love big lumps of Oak, you’ll love this!!
Having just been to Northern Romania, right up by the Ukrainian border, I visited the ‘Merry cemetery’ in he village of Sapanta. This is a graveyard with a difference where the carver of the wooden grave markers had a great sense of humour and wrote amusing ditties/stories about the folk they were commemorating. The cemetery is full of beautifully decorated ‘headstones’ (in Oak)
Anyway, this was all well and good, and I have to say, not really my thing, but then at the back of the cemetery I spotted this little building which was being used as a souvenir shop and relatively recently constructed:
Just to get a closer look, just to check on the size of the sections:
Then a step back to see the whole thing:
Well, I was well bowled over. Those are hefty sections of Oak!!
But wait, … look at this for a doorframe!!:
And here’s he view from the back of the building showing how the lengths are jointed:
But, saving the best till last…
It was all cut on this, a home made bandsaw with a 32mm blade!!!
