Description of Woodland Workshop

A woodland craftsman's workshop should bring immense pleasure, whether it be a simple tarpaulin shelter deep in the woods or a purpose-built haven to shelter from the elements. The tools and devices that furnish it are unique to woodland work and have formed the heritage of woodland crafts that we have today. Following on from his successful book Woodland Craft, woodsman Ben Law explains what makes a good workshop, outlines the key tools needed, gives information on how to sharpen them and shows us how to make an array of fascinating devices from scratch. Clear step-by-step instructions, photographs and beautiful illustrations guide you through the making process. Coupled with interesting titbits of historical and practical information, this is an invaluable guide for every green woodworker.
