Rustic furniture makers take objects from nature and craft them directly into sometimes entertaining and always joyous designs. By and large, self-taught craftsmen, they use just a few simple tools in an attempt to retain the integrity of the natural materials. And every piece they create is an original, reflecting the personality of the maker. This text highlights the lives and work of 15 different craftsmen who epitomize this style. From Gib Jacques, an octogenarian in the Adirondacks, to Oregon's Brent McGregor, a one-time logger, their lives and philosophies permeate the furniture they create. With glorious full-colour photos of their work, much of which is in private collections, this book aims to inspire furniture lovers everywhere.
