Overview

Rustic furniture has an earthy charm that evokes cabins in the woods and country hideaways. Easy to make, rustic furniture is also green through incorporating reclaimed and found materials. In this step-by-step project book, an award-winning woodworker and teacher shows how to use materials collected from the outdoors or recycled from old buildings to make one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture. Every technique is detailed, from cutting round mortises and tenons to making a webbed seat, weaving twigs, traditional joinery, and more. Heirloom-quality projects include a storage chest, chairs, tables, and other attractive and useful pieces. Design alternatives show how to apply the basic techniques to other projects.
