Practical Projects for your Home and GardenBook - 2003
From the beach to the backyard.
Driftwood is an ideal building material. It is abundant, renewable and (best of all) free. It is easy to work with, does not require complicated tools and the results are guaranteed to be unique since no two pieces of driftwood are the same.
Using driftwood adds to the rustic setting of any garden or patio. Because of the natural process that creates driftwood, it requires no finishes and it is naturally waterproof and bug-free. Author Derek Douglas shows how to construct beautiful and useful chairs, tables, benches, arbors, and decorative objects. Nineteen projects are featured that will appeal to novice and experienced woodworkers alike.
The book explains the entire process of creating a driftwood item from how to choose and store driftwood to design tips and the final construction. The necessary materials and tools are fully listed and most are found in the average toolbox.
Each clearly illustrated project in Driftwood Furniture is fully explained with valuable tips and practical advice. The results are fun, whimsical and durable.
