Editor’s note: We have a winner! Troy from Fairbanks, Alaska wins the Rustic Furniture Basics book. Thanks for commenting, everyone! Make sure you’re subscribed to Buzz Saw so you don’t miss a thing!
We’ve added ten new DVDs to our product lineup over the last couple weeks. One of them, new this week, is called Rustic Furniture Basics. Are you a rustic furniture fan? I mean really rustic, not like distressed garage sale antiques, but pieces made from branches, recycled lumber, wood scavenged from old buildings – that kind of “rustic”. It’s the original “reused, recovered, repurposed” furniture!
This new DVD from Taunton is perfect for the beginner builder, and takes you through ten rustic projects. From the Taunton website:
With clear, simple language and valuable close-up shots of each procedure, renowned woodworker Doug Stowe demonstrates how to master every facet of this ancient craft. From selecting branches and logs to finding recycled materials, you’ll discover how rustic furniture making is the original “green” building practice. And you’ll see precisely how to use basic hand tools and low-tech procedures to create attractive, functional pieces with a primitive, natural look.
I’ve got one copy of the companion book, also called Rustic Furniture Basics, to give away – and tomorrow morning (Tuesday) at 9:00 CST I’ll choose one lucky person from all the people who comment on this post to win it! If you Tweet a link to this post, or post about it on your blog or website, come back and tell us about it in the comments for another chance to win! The book is 144 pages, with 282 color photographs and 19 drawings. Good luck!
