Live-Training for WorldSkills Lyon 2024 with 2 young carpenters at Holz-Handwerk

Elias Kleespies and Felix Wilhelm are two talented youngsters who will represent Germany at the WorldSkills Lyon 2024 in September. Elias Kleespies comes from Hesse and went to carpenter school in Bad Wildungen. Together with his colleague Felix Wilhelm from Baden-Württemberg, they demonstrated their impressive skills at the Holz-Handwerk Nürnbergin a video by Fachverband Leben Raum Gestaltungwhich you can watch at the end of the article.

In the training session, Kleespies and Wilhelm presented precise joining techniques that were very well executed, demonstrating meticulous precision and clean execution. Felix Wilhelm provided an example of joint execution, and the WorldSkills expert remarked on the quality of execution, praising the clean connections and half-millimetre dimensional tolerance.

The two young carpenters have an intense period of training ahead of the WorldSkills competition. The session included training on a cabinet model made at a previous competition, with the two receiving advice on veneer application and timing. The whole process involves completing a piece in a strict time frame, with every detail from connections to finishing being rigorously checked. Joints will be assessed before and after gluing, with every detail being followed, without any saw or adhesive marks.
