Preface

A woodland craftsman’s workshop should bring immense pleasure and the tools and devices that furnish it are unique to woodland work and have formed the heritage of woodland crafts that we have today. Following on from his successful book Woodland Craft, woodsman Ben Law explains what makes a good workshop, outlines the key tools needed, gives information on how to sharpen them and shows us how to make an array of fascinating devices from scratch.

Projects include: peeling jig, pole lathe, woodsman’s grip, cleaving brake
16 step-by-step woodland device projects
Beautiful photography and illustrations
A foundation book for every green woodworker to use as reference

Coupled with interesting titbits of historical and practical information, this is an invaluable guide for every green woodworker.
