Mastro d’ascia

The mastro d’ascia was the carpenter that performed heavy carpentry works: he built strokes, tubs, barrels, and distaffs; he assembled looms, he built and mended drawings.

Heavy axes, great planes and compasses, hammers, drills, saws and tools for the edging were the tools that this artisan used with great talent, mastery and precision, especially when he realized artefacts that didn’t allow the least inaccuracy (as the wagons wheelhub).
