Homasote Bricks

DORSET THEATRE FESTIVAL

Master Carpenter

7,390 Bricks

For a production of Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill, I crafted bricks for a week. 

Step 1: Cut Homasote

I cut the homasote into brick sized shapes using the panel saw and table saw. 

Step 2: Split Bricks

I split every brick into two bricks using an array of chisels. Pictured is the jig that I used to hold the bricks in place. I could split around 1,000 bricks in an 8-hour work day. (making 2,000 total).

Step 3: Wire Wheel

Texture was then added to the bricks using a wire wheel.

After painting, assembly and grout, this is the finished product.
