Celebrating Birch

As a boy, I recall my brother-in-law telling of the romantic concept of writing love letters on bark peeled from a birch tree. I haven't given much thought to birch trees or birch wood since then. Birch isn't the type of wood I usually consider for the type of wood-working projects I do.

But I recently received an advance copy of Celebrating Birch: The Lore, Art, and Craft of an Ancient Tree. The book includes many projects from birch bark shoes to carved birch-wood bowls to bark ornaments. There's even a recipe for birch-sap root beer!



The step-by-step photos will guide you through each project. In addition to the beautiful photography throughout the book, the 'Lore and Legends' and 'Biology and Ecology' sections make this book a perfect option to leave on your coffee table, too.

I use the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own DIY projects – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
