There is a new book about to be published called “Celebrating Birch” which some of you might be interested in.
“If you think of birch as simply a wood to work with, think again. For centuries, this legendary tree has been vital to the survival of mankind and is celebrated by cultures around the world. In this stunning salute, the “North House Folk School” will delight your curiosity with the fascinating history and myths of the birch, while sharpening your woodworking skills with 15 beautiful projects that include carved ornaments, turned bowls, bark baskets and more.”
I pre-ordered my copy with Amazon Uk and the delivery date is estimated to be the first week of February.
