Among the leading rustic furniture makers are a number of talented, creative women. Taking nature's materials they create the quintessential "green" furniture and practical items for home or garden. Veronica Chenier of Ontario, Cassilda Brown of Alabama, and Jo Kilmer of North Carolina, share their work in this book, offering step-by-step instructions for three projects. Learn to build a lampshade, a gothic-back chair, and a ladder-back chair. Each project is documented from beginning to end with color photographs and detailed captions, so readers have a clear guide to creating the furniture in their own workshops.
