Overview

This book offers clear and precise instructions for making attractive “lodge look” renditions of furniture, lamps, shelves, and other interior fixtures using slab lumber and objects found in nature. Outdoor projects include birdhouses, fences, gates, arbors, road signs, wayside stands—even bridges.

Slab lumber has the bark still attached. Many rural lumberyards and one-man, portable sawmills still produce this kind of lumber. Roots, twigs, branches, and bark are also employed in rustic construction.

First published in 1939, this classic is once again in print.
