Green Woodworking Pattern Book
Green Woodworking Pattern Book: 300 Woodland Projects from Spoons to Stools
By Ray Tabor
Discover hundreds of projects for working with unseasoned wood in this essential book. Ray Tabor, an unparalleled expert in green woodworking, guides you through this traditional craft.
Whether you are new to the craft and looking for a simple project like a spoon or a bowl or a more experienced worker looking for something challenging, you will find it here. The 300 patterns for the home and garden range from wattle gates to lemon juicers; from chairs, benches, and stools to baskets, whistles, 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. All patterns come 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 projects from the simplest of woodland designs to the more advanced, with something to suit every skill level.
Both a historical record and a sourcebook for those looking to use their green woodworking skills to make traditional items of beauty, this is the perfect book for anyone interested in whittling, woodland crafts, and woodworking.
Ray Tabor worked for much of his life in a woodland nature reserve in Suffolk, England buying and selling traditional products, and chaired the conservation activities of the largest Wildlife Trust in the UK. He led courses in woodland crafts and management and wrote regularly on crafts, tools, and woodland conservation.
