A step-by-step guide to working with green wood.

Sjors van der Meer and Job Suijker introduce you to the traditional skills of green woodworking. Learn about the qualities of wood: how to cut and shape it, how to craft your own tools such as shaving horse, wooden club, chopping block and saw-horse. Then use them to make spoons, spatulas, stools and chairs.

As well as learning new skills, discover how natural surroundings with natural materials can create an overwhelming sense of well-being and enhance your awareness of the environment.

It’s time to take your woodworking out of the workshop and into the forest!

Originally published in the Netherlands in 2017 as “Vers Hout”.
