    Little Thailand Woodworking

    My son just returned from a trip to Thailand. This morning he sent me pictures of a place he visited while there because he thought I'd be interested in the woodworking. Pretty interesting. This is a little about the temple:

    I moved the photos to Photobucket. You may have a look if you are interested:

    That is amazing. I would like to see it. I'm glad that your son had a chance to see it.

    Enjoy,

    I have visited the temple and walked through the workshops. I was told that one of the reasons for its existence is to teach traditional Thai woodworking skills. It is worth the visit and only about two hours from Bangkok.

    Never been to Thialand, but I heard the women there all have thin thia's--lol

    Beauatiful carvings. The carvings in the photo with the ladies sitting on them and working would make a beuatiful set of front doors.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible
