Woodcraft A practical celebration of the tree

John Rhyders First Book

This book takes the reader on a very practical learning journey about the safe use of tools and harvesting of wood to the subsequent uses for roots bark and timber. A step by step account with colour photographs, this book is suitable for a student of woodcraft, the naturalist, and the practitioner of bushcraft skills. If you have ever wanted to make your own bow and arrow, make fire using just friction or explore the properties of bark, make inks and dyes or discover a wealth of other relevant and traditional uses for wood then this book will not disappoint you.  John Rhyder has taught these skills for over 20 years and delivers the information in a no-nonsense and easy to follow guide with a lot of humour

"As you'd expect from one of the legends of outdoor education, this book contains a feast of practical tips. 

If you spend time outdoors, I strongly recommend getting hold of a copy".
