Description

Using simple techniques, Tuscany-based woodworkers Samina Langholz and Andrea Brugi teach you how to make 20 beautiful wood objects for the home. From an egg cup made from a reclaimed beam and broom handle to a chopping board featuring a hand-carved "butterfly" – an old trick for stabilising a crack - here are a wonderful selection of approachable carpentry projects that don't require complicated tools, and can be done easily in the home. Suitable for all levels of expertise – even the complete beginner – the simple and accessible step-by-step instructions are accompanied by stunning location photography. Inspired by the rustic lifestyle of rural Italy and the unspoiled views of olive groves that surround them, Samina and Andrea make beautiful carpentry pieces and this book will inspire you to recreate them in your own home.

The author

Andrea Brugi is a carpenter and wood artist living and working with his Danish wife Samina Langholz in Tuscany. Together, the couple make beautiful and unique pieces by hand – each signed and sold worldwide. Andrea says of his work: ‘I only do what the wood tells me to do. I never force a design on the wood. It is the wood that decides the shapes and the design, I just listen to it. Working with wood is so inspiring and each piece has to be treated with respect.’
