A former joiner has turned an old mansion in Beijing into a museum that aims to educate the public about the value of ancient carpentry, Xing Wen reports.

Within a village in Taihu town in Beijing's Tongzhou district stands a quaint country mansion that was turned into the capital's first private museum devoted to traditional Chinese woodworking.

Covering an area of 10,000 square meters, the museum has five exhibition halls in which woodworks ranging from utensils to adornments to waterwheels and canoes are displayed and classified into over 40 categories.
