Carpentry elements for special sceneries!
Carpentry is an art form used frequently in elaborating a setting or different elements of scenography. It is used in various fields, in multiple activities such as interior design, vintage refurbishment, theater and opera performances, cinema, entertainment, or television. Wood is a special material that can be processed in different ways. Depending on the requirements of each project, the objects can have special shapes and complexities, in order to fit in the overall aesthetic concept. Through these specific processes, a team of experts can create frames with wall cassettes, sections designed to meet the aesthetic standards of a certain era (reproduction or interpretation), false perspective decorations, floors with lighting systems, furniture objects in various styles (Ludovic, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Victorian etc.) and a lot of other objects.
The set designer creates the design and comes up with the basic ideas and sketches. In the elaboration of each element, their requirements are taken into account and the specialists will offer unique technical solutions, in order to materialize the concept.
- What techniques and procedures are being used in carpentry processes?
Special techniques and procedures are being used in the construction of carpentry objects, because they are useful in bringing the raw material to the final result. To create the desired design, certain pieces may require bending and pressing, gluing, milling, or other interventions, such as drying in the vise or cutting the plates to size. This process uses professional tools and equipment - circulars, band saws, a planing table, a grinder, a planer, a shelter, or others.
- What kind of materials can be used?
Wood is the main material used in the creation of carpentry elements - but it can have various qualities, hardness, and characteristics. Therefore, choosing the right material is essential – you can opt for fir, oak, mahogany, lime, pine, or conglomerates such as TEGO, OSB, OSBPLY, MDF, or HDF.
Various carpentry processes for a unique design!
Creating a decor can be a laborious process - it all depends on the complexity of the project. The team of specialists studies the project and estimates the total duration of the execution. Size is a factor that must be constantly considered, as it can influence both the procedures used or the number of people involved and the length of the construction period. For example, an oversized staircase or a series of massive doors and windows can be much more complicated to build and will, therefore, require more time. The actual implementation is related to the necessary manufacturing procedures and can take from a few weeks to 2 months or even longer.
- How long do the carpentry elements last?
The durability of carpentry objects depends on the conditions of storage and use. In general, their lifespan can extend up to several decades, but depending on how they are being used, it can vary. However, if certain parts become damaged, wood is a material that can be easily reconditioned, painted, and repaired through special methods and techniques.
