Carpentry
 
  The carpenter dresses his plank—the tongue of his fore-plane whistles its wild ascending lisp.
Walt Whitman.    
  1
        The house-builder at work in cities or anywhere,
The preparatory jointing, squaring, sawing, mortising,
The hoist-up of beams, the push of them in their places, laying them regular,
Setting the studs by their tenons in the mortises, according as they were prepared,
The blows of the mallets and hammers.
Walt Whitman.    
  2
  Are the tools without, which the carpenter puts forth his hands to, or are they and all the carpentry within himself; and would he not smile at the notion that chest or house is more than he?
Cyrus A. Bartol.
