I am currently working on a greatly revised and enlarged version of my 1978 book Country Woodcraft. Contents will include almost all of the original edition (with the classic black and white photographs) plus extensive updated material on shaving horse and workbenches, carving bowls and spoons, tool sharpening and much more. The new edition, titled Country Woodcraft – Then and Now will be published by Lost Art Press, hopefully in late 2019.


My other out-of-print books can usually be found as used copies on the internet. These are: Handmade (with Louise Langsner; Harmony Books, 1974) and A Logbuilder’s Handbook (Rodale Press, 1982.)


If you understand German, or like to find rare books, look for Holzarbeiten Für Das Alternative Landleben (Volksverlag), and  Das Grose Buch vom Stuhlbau (Verlag Th. Schäfer).
