Traditional Country Woodworking

Today's woodworkers can continue to keep this long-standing tradition alive by making pieces according to age-old designs. Traditional Country Woodworking celebrates woodworking as a rural craft and brings to life the many ways that wood has been used for functional and decorative purposes. 18 projects are explained stage-by-stage and are accompanied by colour illustrations and scaled templates for accurate measuring and cutting. The projects are organized in level of ability from novice through to experienced, and also vary in purpose - with items suitable for living room, kitchen, dining room, bedroom, bathroom, and outdoor use. A comprehensive section covering What You Need to Know includes all the basic woodworking skills required, along with different choices of finishes and woods that can be used.
