In a world without wood, we might not be here at all. Without wood, we wouldn't have had the fire, heat, and shelter that allowed us to expand into the colder regions of the planet. If civilization somehow did develop, our daily lives still would be vastly different: there would be no violins, baseball bats, chopsticks, or wine corks. The book you are now holding wouldn't exist. At the same time, many of us are removed from the world where wood is shaped and celebrated every day. That world is inhabited by a unique assortment of eccentric craftsmen and passionate enthusiasts who have created some of the world's most beloved musical instruments, feared weapons, dazzling architecture, sacred relics, and bizarre forms of transportation. In A Splintered History of Wood, Spike Carlsen has uncovered the most outlandish characters and examples, from world-champion chainsaw carvers to blind woodworkers, the Miraculous Staircase to the Lindbergh kidnapping case, and many more, in a passionate and personal exploration of nature's greatest gift.

Learn the Best Woodworking Techniques Today! As a person who just got recently interested in woodworking, you need to gain a lowdown on this hobby, so you can fully immerse yourself on what this activity is all about. Woodworking is a craft that asks but a few things from its pursuers: Firstly, one needs creativity. Everyone is born with this trait, but a woodworker must develop a real desire to create using wood in order to fully appreciate this craft. Secondly, craftsmen require patience and care to ensure the quality of their craft. This observance to properness produces woodwork of fine quality and helps develop and improve skill. Lastly, the craftsman's tools. A woodworker would be lost without his most basic kit, which usually consists of his handsaw, pocket-knife and oil stone to sharpen his blades. A small assortment of wood scraps set aside to supplement whatever project you are making will also come in handy. However, this is not the complete set of basic tools a woodworker has to have, but the set that he absolutely must have in any situation. In "The Ultimate Woodworking Guide and Projects for Beginners!" you will learn everything every beginner needs to know, from setting up a workshop, scrutinizing wood, the basic safety rules of woodworking, and putting your knowledge into practice.

There are more complex ways to do it., with fancy controls, a hundred different burning tips. But here Dick Armstrong reminds us that the art of woodburning is more in the technique than the tools. Using a single-tip, simple woodburner, he goes back to the basics, starting with the skills that every woodburner should know and then applying them in three projects. The projects are designed to move from the easiest, a lighthouse, to one of medium difficulty, a dilapidated barn, to one that requires some skill, a clipper ship. Every step is illustrated with a clear photo and description. In addition, a gallery of Dick's work gives the reader many ideas for application of these skills. This is the book for beginning woodburners, but the techniques and experience Dick shares will be valued by pyrographers of every level.
