Perhaps...I thought I was going to Mexico but that trip has been called off. Few pics from Pisa and Florence Italy.

That doesn't look like the door to the leaning tower. I held it open for a priest carrying a box when I was backpacking there back in 1989.

screw the knockers, that door(s) is awesome. The proportions are incredible.

What? You're a cabinet maker and you don't know about the Golden Rectangle?

There are at least seven on those doors.

The door is not from the tower of Pisa. I did stop by the tower.... too much mast rake must have been designed by a sailor.

Not rake, PREBEND. If you look closely it straightens out at the top.

PHI? Yes I know about that. Its just superbly done. I try for it, yet never achieve it that well. or, I just can't do it because of constraints of where something has to go.

Karl the part that I find interesting is thinking of the tools they had to work with back then.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arithmetic_rope

The History channel had a program showing how this rope was used in building a cathedral. It was a "reenactor" type group. The rope is versatile and really, really fast! Scribing an arc on stone was very simple. It would surely work just as well with wood.

You'd be amazed how little has actually changed. The biggest change is from water/slave/animal power to electricity.

Its only very recently that cnc's have come far enough that they can do ornate carvings, otherwise methodology, and tooling has been the same for 500+years.

Glues is another big one. Don't have to cut of the cow or horses hooves to make glue anymore.
