Wood is the most basic, useful and beautiful of materials. Its practical strength and its durability has earned it a special status among crafts materials. The range of woods and finishes which are available, and the workability of even the hardest woods, provide the possibility of satisfying and attractive results for either the beginner or the experienced craftsman.
Many objects made of wood have survived for centuries, not only for their historical interest but because craftsmen of old took care to create objects which were not only useful but of lasting beauty. This book contains the most basic information about becoming a craftsperson : most of us will not go on to produce examples of intarsia or marquetry which would be fine enough to survive in museums, but the practical satisfaction of making household items is a good place to begin.
Follow the example of crafts workers through the ages: express yourself by working with wood!
