By Ben Law
Foreword by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
A trusty book if you have ever fancied building your own roundwood timber-framed caravan, assembling a cherry picking basket or learning all about logs and kindling. For each woodland craft project in this book, author Ben Law outlines what materials are needed, recommended tools and set-by-step instructions, rather like a recipe book.
Author Ben Law is a woodsman, craftsman, eco-builder, teacher and writer. The building of his unique West Sussex home was featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs and subsequently voted by viewers as the most popular episode ever.
This, his sixth book, has chapters on Woodland Resource; Directory of Tree Species; Crafts for Farm and Garden; Wood Fuel; Crafts for Building; Domestic Crafts; Tools and Devices for Woodland Crafts. The book also profiles various makers of objects.
