February 18, 2019

Are you managing a team of artists who always engage in theatrical performances? As a designer, which areas do you often give more attention when it comes to theatrical preparations? If there is one thing that is probably making your team not to get the best results, then its theatrical designing. Designing the theatre has various advantages for the performers.

Firsts and foremost, the positioning and setting up of either the candles or any lighting systems have to be placed in the most proper way. This plays a central role in scene setting. A well-designed theatre will definitely create the best scene which will look real. It is always good for both the audience and stage performers to have a vivid feeling of what is going on. This boosts their confidence and therefore it enhances better performance.

Secondly, in most instances, privacy of some characters is very important. Not all scenes need to be shown to the audience but rather a relation of what they should expect. Some performance needs only the voice of a character and this means that they have to be enclosed somewhere private. Stage designing will always enable the setting up of enclosed acting spaces in order to fit the performance. Additionally, the best-designed stages always give an in-depth or rather elaborate explanation and understanding of the whole act. A raised stage will vividly show all the acting, therefore, the audience will be satisfied.

However, coming up with a well-designed theatre stage needs various woodworking tools that will make the process easier and achievable. Various tools that theatre production teams can with in designing and making props that are specifically meant for particular uses are discussed below.

Measuring tools- measuring tools are a must-have tools for any designing to be completed appropriately. A mitre is a very important woodworking tool that should be considered for this work. A miter will always enable designers to out the wood both externally and internally in a very efficient manner.

Planer- although its uses come after the cutting has been done, its benefits are very essential in designing bearing in mind that they come in different shapes and styles. It’s hard to work with a rough wooden surface especially when it comes to theatre designing. Planners increase the smoothness of the wood which in turn results in high precision on joining points. It is also very efficient and saves a lot of time

Woodworking saws- a cabinet table saw is the most recommended sawing machine. It has various purposes including cutting metallic, wooden and plastic designing materials. Apparently, it is the safest saw tool a designer can use. Various designs for this tool contain heavy cut hand-wheels for cutting objects.

Paint sprayer- different stage performances can be organised in a single day. However, each performance may require a different colour. A paint spray is a very portable and reliable tool which caters for this problem.

These tools can make creating theatres stage design more convenient. It is easy to use woodworking tools provided you go through the manual properly. They are less involving and therefore require little skills.
