An essential resource for any traditional woodland crafter, a book by Ray Tabor, the unparalleled expert on green woodworking. The book features over 300 patterns for traditional craft designs featuring projects ranging from fences, gates, garden furniture, through benches and stools to walking sticks and door wedges. Green woodworking involves the use of freshly felled timber (unseasoned wood), and embraces a number of traditional woodland crafts, including turning and carving. This book contains a range of designs for home and garden, from wattle gates to lemon juicers, from chairs and stools to baskets, whistles and spoons – all with detailed dimensions in both metric and imperial. Each item has annotated black-and-white patterns, a brief description, historical information and details of the materials that should be used. Includes the simplest of woodland designs to more advanced, with something for everyone. Both a historical record and a sourcebook for those looking to use their green woodworking skills to make traditional items of beauty, the book should be on the shelf of anyone interested in whittling, woodland crafts and any kind of woodworking.
