Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
When a tree is first felled, the wood is green and very easy to cut, bend and shape, making it a good material for making tools, furniture and plant supports. Working with green wood is an age-old craft brought up-to-date in this manual. With a comprehensive introductory section on tools, techniques and types of wood, the book contains 15 easy-to-follow projects - many of which can be completed in a weekend - ranging from trellises, pergolas and benches to tables, plant supports and even a living willow arch. In addition, each project is accompanied by step-by-step instructions and photographs, illustrations showing design variations, as well as a full-colour photograph of the finished piece.
