Hang up your Chisels and Plane blades and take a load off with a recently turned goblet of your favourite poison, in the lounge of our Gentlemen's (and ladies) Club.

Plywood exhibition at the V&A

Postby MattS » 23 Sep 2017, 18:10

Not sure if you've seen but the V&A currently had an exhibition on plywood. I'm a bit of a plywood lover so it was right up my street! But even for a woodie, who prefers solid timber I reckon it's worth a visit if you find yourself in London. It goes through history, manufacturing and covers all sorts of uses from buildings and cars to furniture and skateboards!

One thing that was new to me was Wikihouse, an open source CNC design for building houses, their website is worth a look.

if images are not visible on my posts it is because Photobucket withdrew their free hosting service. I will reload images to the most recent threads in due course. Please drop me a PM if you would like to see anything before then
