About Woodcraft

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, axe-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 the selection and splitting of 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.
