How much do you really know about the wood you craft with?
If you're a woodworker, crafter, or artist who works with wood,
this stunning new book from the North House Folk School, will
fascinate, inform, and inspire you. In celebrating its 10th
anniversary, the well-known woodworking and craft school in
northern MN decided to salute the birch - also known as the
"Mother Tree" because it's been vital to the survival of northern
civilizations for centuries.
So, in addition to 20 beautiful and practical projects you can
create - such as a turned wooden bowl, a carved box, and woven
basket, to name a few - you will discover the rich history, the
fascinating cultural myths, and the significant ecological status
of this beautiful and legendary tree. In fact, after reading
Celebrating Birch, you'll discover that the birch is more than
just a tree or a raw material; it's a link to the past that
enriches the life, heart, and mind of anyone who works with it.
