Craftsmen in US use medieval techniques to reconstruct Notre Dame roof support

The Art Newspaper wrote about an interesting teaching project. “A team of around 30 young craftsmen in Washington, DC will use 800-year-old woodworking techniques to reconstruct a piece of the fire-damaged roof of Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. (…) The project is meant to be a “gift” to France and the collective effort to rebuild Notre Dame, and will serve as a living record of tradition techniques.”
