Living Wood covers: - Becoming a green woodworke--Mike's story, from playing in the woodlands to owning a share in a woodland in Herefordshire - Buying, managing, and harvesting a woodland; - Developing woodland facilities, including tracks, steps, huts, a barn, a kitchen, and a compost toilet - Setting up a woodland workshop--plans for a shelter and updated designs for a shaving horse, a pole lathe, and other green wood-working tools and devices - Making ladder-back chairs, including cleaving, steam-bending, and techniques for ultra-tight joints without glue - Seating chairs with bark and with cord - A comprehensive list of suppliers, woodland organizations, and books Now in its fourth edition, Living Wood includes a selection of photographs of Mike's latest workshop at Brookhouse Wood.
