From ancient times wood has been one of the most used of all our natural resources, and throughout history new ways of using it have continually been found. The earliest aeroplanes were made from wood, vintage cars have wooden frames, the paper we write on, the pencil we write with and even the eraser began as a tree. We may be thankful for the products of modern technology but we also enjoy the satisfying and visully pleasing products of a bygone age. The clear step-by-step projects provided in Traditional Country Woodworking, organized and color-coded by an increasing level of ability required, should enable and inspire readers to make their own hand-crafted traditional wooden furniture and artifacts that will help capture the essence of country living and style.
