Rough to Fine: Programming Lessons from Woodworking

Woodworking has experienced quite a renaissance as of late, and a very popular style involves using power tools for rough work and hand tools for detail and precision work. Using both defines each woodworker's speed and ability to produce beautiful/functional pieces. The same can be true of developers. Automation, convention, powerful IDEs, generators and libraries can make each developer go from nothing to something very quickly, but what about diving deeper to get the precision, performance and beauty you need out of your applications? Come find out.

Mitteleuropa, Tirol - Herstellen eines Butterfasses

In his small woodworking shop at St. Magdalena (Gsiestal) Konrad Gietel is making staves from pine wood for a churn. First he assembles the staves, then he applies cold glue, and finally he fits iron straps around the churn to keep the staves tightly together. After some time, while the glue has set, rough patches on the wood are removed with a plane, and the inside and outside surfaces are made smooth. A bottom piece is fitted. Gietel has cut a wooden die and fits a long handle. He makes the cover plug on a wood turning lathe, and then fits the churning board with the ropes. The churn (Schlacker) is finished by painting the staves red and the iron straps green.

Mitteleuropa, Bayerischer Wald - Flechten einer Schwinge in Herzogsreut

During the course of this work, the craftsman was interrupted only twice so that the settings reflect the natural continuity of the working process.
