Wooden handicrafts are different from general furniture. They are suitable for dampness and avoid drying. Therefore, wooden handicrafts should not be exposed to the sun. Do not blow air conditioners on furniture. In spring, autumn and winter, the indoor air should be kept from drying, and a humidifier should be used. Moisturizing, indoor fish and flower cultivation can also adjust the indoor air humidity. Wooden handicrafts must be stored in moderation, and the objects stored in the cabinet should not exceed the door frame.

Always pay attention to prevent bumps and cracks. If you find that the tenon is dislodged when using or moving, you must re-gluing and sealing before use. In order to protect the paint film from being scratched, and to show the wood texture, the panels of wooden handicrafts are generally placed on the countertop with a thick glass plate, and a small suction pad is used to separate the glass plate from the wooden countertop. It is not recommended to use transparent polyethylene crystal plates. Wooden handicrafts are generally used for a long time, so it is usually necessary to protect the furniture surface coating. It is best to wipe it with a little wax every three months, which not only increases the beauty of the furniture, but also protects the wood. To keep the wooden crafts neat and tidy, clean the dust with a clean gauze daily. Chemical brighteners should not be used to avoid stickiness and damage to the paint film. In order to maintain the brightness of the furniture paint film, the walnuts can be crushed, peeled, and then polished with three layers of gauze. Avoid overturning of solvents such as alcohol and banana water. Otherwise, there will be "scars" on the surface of the furniture. When the furniture surface is stained with dirt, it should be washed with mild soapy water. After drying, wax it again to restore the original appearance, but do not use kerosene, gasoline, turpentine and other solvent-based liquids to wipe, otherwise the surface will be wiped off. of paints and lacquers.

How should wooden handicrafts be maintained?
time Sep 30,2022
Many people are worried about a problem when buying handicrafts, such as the maintenance of wooden handicrafts. After all, these handicrafts are good-looking and good-looking, but if you are not careful, they may leave traces, which greatly reduces the value of the entire handicraft, and the appearance value will also be affected. Can the solid wood crafts be maintained with wood wax oil? In fact, furniture or craft products made of solid wood can be painted with wood wax oil as long as they are not edible. Solid wood handicrafts are different from ordinary furniture. As ornamental products, they only need to be wiped with wood wax oil in daily maintenance to enhance the gloss and texture of the surface. Many solid wood handicrafts use a mortise and tenon structure, so the structure needs to be disassembled when painting the wood wax oil. Such as the little monkey ornaments, which are purely handmade by woodworking masters, the surface has gradually lost its luster after being placed for a few years, so it is only necessary to apply wood wax oil to brighten it. Before painting, dismantle the handicrafts, use a clean cotton cloth dipped in an appropriate amount of wood wax oil to wipe evenly. After wiping, put it in a ventilated and dry place to dry, wait for it to dry before assembling. The surface of the handicrafts coated with wood wax oil is bright, the surface wood grain is clearly displayed, the hand feels round and comfortable, and the grade is also improved a lot. Can wood wax oil be applied to crafts with a matte surface such as pine cones? Pine towers are the seeds of the Pinaceae plant, which are often used as pendants on Christmas trees, and are also often used as craft ornaments for interior decoration. The pine tower is only used for still life viewing, so it only needs to be painted with wood oil to enhance the gloss of the surface and avoid problems such as mildew in the rainy season. Before the official operation, the pine tower needs to be pretreated. Clean the pine tower as a whole to remove dust on the surface and dry it in the sun to avoid dust accumulated on the surface from affecting the absorption of wood oil. Dilute wood oil with special thinner to reduce viscosity. Since the pine cone is of an irregular shape, it is difficult to wipe and coat, so directly soak the pine cone head down in wood oil, take it out after a short time, and then place it in a ventilated place to dry. In this way, the painted pine tower can be anti-corrosion and mildew, effectively prolong the service life, and improve the appearance a lot.
The history of the music box
time Jul 15,2022
The music box was invented by the Swiss in 1796, and its pronunciation part consists of two parts: a drum and a reed. The music box is exquisitely crafted, and its clear and translucent sound quality brings wonderful enjoyment to people. Now the octave (box) has become a good gift for people to visit relatives and friends. To explain the term "music box", we must first clarify what "music box" is. There is such a record in ancient my country's "Three Character Classic": "Pao soil leather, wood, stone and gold. Silk and bamboo are eight tones." It can be seen that it is the collective name of ancient musical instruments, namely páo, soil, leather, wood, stone, gold, Eight types of silk and bamboo. Among the ancient musical instruments, sheng and yong belong to the class; xun, etc. belong to the soil class; drums, etc. belong to the leather class; wooden fish, etc. belong to the wood class; chimes, etc. belong to the stone class; bells, bells, etc. belong to the metal class; Class; tube, flute, flute, etc. belong to bamboo. It is not difficult to see that the claws, soil, leather, wood, stone, gold, silk and bamboo refer to the raw materials used in making musical instruments. These eight raw materials can be said to make all musical instruments. The "music box" is a definition that is both vivid and colorful. That is to say, this box includes the sound of all instruments, including the sound of all music, including the sound of all musical expressions. Later, music boxes that use perforated paper as a "musical score" and compressed air to pronounce, prompted the advent of the phonograph. In turn, it once led to the decline of the music box. Until the 1960s, Kido Ruijue and his wife from Switzerland, the birthplace of music boxes, regained the traditional family industry. The Ruijue company they founded is still the only company in the world that makes music boxes by hand. The first Shanghai Music Box Treasures Exhibition Hall displays more than 200 classic music box collections of different ages and types carefully selected by the Arashiyama Music Box Museum in Kyoto, Japan.
