Rustic structures and accents made
from green wood, soldered copper, weathered wood, rough cedar, unfinished iron, and other
common materials. The book opens with an idea section demonstrating how rustic structures
and accents can transform the look of a landscape. This is followed by a section showing
where to find green wood and other materials, and how to work with them. The heart of the
book is 20 plans and step-by-step directions for a wide range of projects that are easy to
build, and most can be completed in a single weekend.

projects, two experts in this traditional art teach the pleasures of working with sticks,
