Ancient Egyptian Woodworking

Woodworking is a very ancient art.  How old?  Well, nearly 4,500 years ago, while stone workers were building the pyramids, Egyptian woodworkers were known as the best craftsmen to the world.

Using some local and many imported woods, these imaginative woodworkers created the mortise and tenon, dovetail and many other joints we use today.  They were using hide glue extensively in their work, building some impressive projects.

Once you read about the Egyptian woodworkers and their craft, you’ll understand what real throwback woodworking is all about.
