The author features three women who share their special designs of rustic woodworking. Using the materials that nature provides, they create beautiful furniture and accessories for home and garden. New Yorker Jane Voorhees creates a picture frame using birch bark and twigs. Skye Gregson, who lives among the Adirondack Mountains, makes a diminutive three-legged table, with cherry burl top and apple legs. From a log, sculptor Marcia Perry, of Michigan, carves a cave-like child’s chair with a delightful squirrel gracing the top. All three bring considerable talent and creativity to their work, which they freely share with readers. Each project is illustrated with step-by-step color photos, and detailed descriptions of the techniques employed, so readers have a clear guide to creating the furniture.
