WOODCRAFT is the latest title from Barnaby Carder, aka Barn the Spoon

This is what the publisher say:
Looking for a simpler, more natural way of working with wood? Create beautiful wooden objects from fresh green wood by becoming skilled in the crafts of whittling, ax-based furniture making, turning, and weaving.
With green woodworking there’s no need for costly materials and machinery. All you need to begin crafting is a log, an axe, and a hand knife.
Starting with selecting and splitting your very first log, let Woodcraft show you all the techniques of green woodworking and guide you step by step through a series of rewarding projects.
Learn to carve your own spoons, bowls, shrink boxes, and other objects; construct simple pieces of furniture, such as stools and side tables; turn wood on a pole lathe; and weave with willow rods and birch bark.
WOODCRAFT brings up-to-date a newly resurgent folk craft and makes it truly accessible to all–no workshop required.
So, what are you waiting for? Get in touch with nature and find harmony working with your hands.
