Outdoor Woodwork: 16 Easy-To-Build Projects for Your Yard & Garden
picture
Features:-
There's more to a cultivated country spread or city terrace garden than the plants. People increasingly see their gardens as outdoor rooms, and they want to furnish and decorate them as attractively and comfortably as any other part of the home. Who doesn't dream of having coffee on the garden bench, eating lunch at a handmade picnic table, or snuggling with a lover under an arbor in the moonlight or in a gazebo during a thunderstorm?

Readily available, easy to work with, and inexpensive, wood is the ideal material for creating stylish and practical garden features. And you can often use low-cost, rough-cut wood straight from the sawmill for rustic, outdoor projects.

OUTDOOR WOODWORK offers 16 functional and attractive projects for the garden, including fences and gates, benches and chairs, decking, sheds, arbors, pergolas, trellises, planters, picnic tables, and a child's playhouse and treehouse. Each project has clear, step-by-step instructions and diagrams accompanied by full-color photographs showing the finished piece in its garden setting. Expert advice on staining and varnishing ensures that wooden garden features will stand up to the outdoor elements for years to come. This book is ideal as a reference for beginners and as a sourcebook of inspiration for more experienced do-it-yourself enthusiasts.

Green Wood for the Garden: 15 Easy Weekend Projects Using Freshly Cut Wood
picture
Features:-
Green wood from a newly felled tree is easy to cut, bend, and shape. That is why working with green wood remains a time-honored rural craft for producing rustic-style furniture and other outdoor fixtures. Though there are many carpentry books on the market, few among them focus on this increasingly popular subject. Alan and Gill Bridgewater's brand new title is precisely what green wood carpenters have been looking for. Following a comprehensive introductory section on tools, techniques, and types of wood, the authors present 15 easy-to-follow projects that will result in attractive and useful objects made of green wood. They include a trellis, a garden bench, a rustic slab wood gate, and a backyard pergola, to cite just a few. Directions for all projects are heavily illustrated, and range from "easy" to "ambitious." Many can be completed within a single weekend. Large full-color photos of all finished pieces show do-it-yourselfers what their projects will look like when completed. There are 110 full-color photos in total, plus 60 instructive illustrations.
