« Part 25: Black Forest Wood Carvers - Reposted Part 26 of Historic Woodworker Videos series Part 27: Furniture's Race to the Bottom »

Over the last month, I have focused on a woodworker in the 15th century that created religious carvings for the medieval church. If you were not a farmer, a soldier, or a priest, a woodworker would most likely create images for the church that dominated every communilty.

I focused on the german sculptor, Tilman Riemenschneider. His work was beautiful and stands above the church of the day because his carving showed so much emotion. Think of the pressure on this woodworker when they mounted his work in the church for all to see for years and years.
