above-average carpentry items - do they hold more?

Post by Kent » Sat Aug 09, 2014 6:01 pm

I bought a wardrobe from a shop and it didn't seem to hold a lot.

They I recalled that in leatherworking, if you make an above average backpack, pouch, or other container, it holds more. Then I got to wondering if this also applied to wardrobes, desks, and other carpentered items that have a holding capacity.

I guess it would take a GM to be able to answer this question.

Not to be contrary or anything, but it sounds like that's something that could be doable. The better something is made, the more would fit. Not only that, but considering the work involved with making a piece of furniture, especially a higher than average one, one would think that it'd pay off in space available.

I am a little happy that I never spent the time making custom furniture for Jilliana because then I would have been disappointed. :)

A 6 by 4 wardrobe is always going to be 6 by 4, regardless of how well it's put together. The doors may be all crooked and the wood may be all scratched up if your carpenter isn't good, but it's not going to magically make it any bigger if you're a master carpenter.

All a masterwork piece of furniture will grant, is a higher value of furniture. It's like a masterfull painting, or piece of art.

I guess I just think of when I've done my own carpentry in real life. When I make something and it comes out crude, then it's going to be weebly wobbly and weird and it's just going to be cumbersome to put something into. I guess as far as CLOK goes I have to think of crude as being not particularly attractive instead of viewing it as with holes in it, etc.
