One of Eco-logic's best-selling titles from the master woodsman Ray Tabor about the natural way of working with unseasoned wood to create a huge variety of useful products. Based on over three decades of working with green wood, Ray has collected all his knowledge together in The Encyclopedia of Green Woodworking – a book for beginners and experts alike.
Contents include: creating & maintaining your own woodland; key skills; fuel; fencing & hurdles; lathes and turnery; baskets; walking sticks; spoons; benches, stools & chairs; garden furniture and more. Clear away the mystique and acquire a creative and inexpensive skill. If you want to make something from green wood comprehensive instructions will probably be found in this book.
When the author was asked to update The Encyclopedia of Green Woodworking he said not much had changed – the techniques and products had been good for the last 1000 years, so should be okay for the next 1000. The publisher did however update some material and all the references for the latest edition.
