Your Questions About Carpenter Tools



Ruth asks…

Have you heard this story somewhere before…?

A dirty old bronze age carpenter, already with a number of wives of his own, had an affair with an underage prostitute and got her pregnant.

To avoid the wrath of his wives, the community and her being stoned to death, they moved towns in order to give birth.

The only sure way to restore face and save her life was to claim an “immaculate conception”, and that the child was “the son of god”..

This lie had to be perpetuated and the child soon believed in his own myth. As an adult he was easily able to convert fools and peasants with his earnest preachings, and was soon considered a troublesome upstart by the state and so was executed.

Up to and over 100 years later this myth was edited and refined for use a political tool to control populations and/or foster divisiveness.

The lies, deceit and myths are still usefull political tools today, where the ignorant masses can be swayed to seek links between the church and the state, and many other deceitful and self serving agendas are also fulfilled.

Is this a more likely story than some others..?

Does it make much more sense than some others?

Thanks

Paul asks…

why are asians so scared of everything?

I work in construction as an exterior carpenter and all the painters on site are asian. Chinese as they speak cantonese. When we’re working on the same building and on the same wall, as I slowly work my towards them and get within 10 feet or so they very quickly pick up their paint/tools and get out of my way and work somewhere else. I don’t ask them to move, as soon as I get near them they think they need to move for me. Also If I have materials or tools in their way, they won’t ask me to move my stuff for them. they will either work somewhere else or come back later. Being the nice guy that I am, I move my stuff because I know they are too shy to ask.This happens on every site that has asians.

At the mall I notice asian women are the same, maybe even worse. They make sure they are in noones way and if I get near them they move. They just always look scared and insecure when in public. I’m not a big or intimidating guy, I’m 5’6 and very freindly. So my question is, why are asians so insecure, timid and shy?
I forgot to add I live in canada in a city that’s heavily populated by asians. Most of these people are well established and have been here for a while. Where I live asians are stereotyped as being scared all the time.

Daniel asks…

How to be a carpenter?

I intend to change my career to be a professional carpenter from current position as an officer in a local office. I have no much time to learn from a seasoned carpenter and no investment either. What I want is I will buy all necessary tools some timber materials and then documents for me to carry self-study. I’ve been interested in home furniture DIY long time. Can any one recommend me where I can find good document for carpentry and home furniture DIY?

Thanks.
Best Answer:

Nice. I wish this will help you to be a good carpenter and house furniture DIYer. Possible you will become rich being a carpenter because there are always millions of people prefer 100% hand-made wood furniture and in fact such kind of furniture has a very high price on the market, and on every market in the world today.

Good luck guy.

Denny answers:

David is right on the money. You sound very ambitious. Furniture design and assembly are rewarding. It is amazing to see the transformation of a block of wood into a finished piece. University of Minnesota has some great trade classes. You will need basic carpentry all the way to final finishes. Your studies will also expose you to a variety of furniture styles and uses.

Locate someone who will mentor you as you study to become a craftsman. Their knowledge combined with hands on experience is more valuable than you know.
