Sea Gypsy Woodworking

I thought I’d share some photos from my recent trip to the Morgan sea gypsy people in Phang Nga, Thailand. The photos are displayed in four Instagram posts:

I thought I'd share some photos from my recent trip to the Morgan sea gypsy people in Phang Nga, Thailand. . This post focuses on their homes. They use a lot of natural materials when building their homes. Flooring is commonly branches, either whole if small or split down the middle when larger. They also used split branches for the walls. Stumps and framework are of logs and branches of varying sizes as needed. The home featured here is the 'advanced' design, it featured milled timber for flooring internally, which is not so common. The other home pictured in the background is fairly typical of a simpler home. All are hand built either by their owners and immediate family, or also with the help of the community. . #thailand #thaiwoodworking #thaiwoodwork #thaiwoodboats #thaifishingboat #thailongboat #thaiboat #woodwork #woodworking #woodboatbuilding #blessingthenations #transformourworld #transformourworldthailand #phuketchristiancentre

I thought I'd share some photos from my recent trip to the Morgan sea gypsy people in Phang Nga, Thailand. . This last post shows a very special fishing boat. It rides the waves of sand with ease, has little trouble pulling a load of fish, and comes complete with the full range of sound effects created by its young owner! Young boys want to be like their daddy's, in any culture, so the onus is on us men to make sure that we are something our boys will want to look up too… . #thailand #thaiwoodworking #thaiwoodwork #thaiwoodboats #thaifishingboat #thailongboat #thaiboat #woodwork #woodworking #woodboatbuilding #blessingthenations #transformourworld #transformourworldthailand #phuketchristiancentre
