Detailed Description

From Tree To Table: How to Make Your Own Rustic Log Furniture. Author, Alan Garbers

Discover the craft of building distinctive rustic furniture from cut timber in this comprehensive guide for woodworkers. Award-winning outdoor writer Alan Garbers shows how to use raw logs to make earthy but elegant pieces. Alan offers sage troubleshooting advice on procuring and processing logs, slabs, and rough-cut lumber, based on years of experience and a passion for the outdoors. He walks you through all of the tools and techniques you need to know for making a variety of eco-chic furniture, much like you might find in an upscale lodge or luxurious backwoods resort.

With From Tree To Table you will:

  • Learn how to make one-of-a-kind cabin-style beds, tables, benches, lamps, coat racks, kiva ladders, and more
  • Find which tree species look best with the bark on, and which work better with the bark off
  • Learn why wood may shrink, warp, or crack-and how to deal with rot, decay, and insects
  • Get practical, hands-on guidance for furniture-making techniques-from steam bending and joinery to sanding, gluing, and finishing
