About Wood Craft

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, and turning.

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 Wood Craft 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 pots, and other objects; construct simple pieces of furniture, such as a frame stool and side table; discover how to turn wood on a pole lathe in order to construct a full chair with turned legs and back rest.

Wood Craft 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.
