Open this great book on making your own rustic furniture. Once confined to backwoods cabins and hunting lodges, rustic furniture is being recognized today for its primitive ingenuity and beauty. Craftspeople around the country are recapturing the techniques and visions of earlier craftsmen who recognized the beauty of natural materials and functionality of common-sense design. They merged the two in styles of furniture that were perfectly suited to their rugged environments.
Now these wonderful rustic creations are finding their way into some of the finest homes and most elegant galleries. Larry Hawkins specializes in twig mosaic furniture. Twig mosaic utilizes the great variety of color and texture in the bark of twigs and trees to create wonderful patterns on the surfaces of furniture. The results are fantastic pieces of furniture, destined to take a predominant place in any room setting.
Larry takes the reader/craftsman step-by-step through the process of creating a tiered clock. The techniques learned along the way can be applied to any number of furniture forms, many of which are shown in the gallery. Every step is illustrated with a full color photograph and a precise description of the processes involved.
