Every woodworker will want to own this colorful, information-packed, mammoth resource for weekend crafting. It's filled with 150 classic projects and features an introductory section that walks readers through the various planning stages. It's all covered: selecting the right wood, working with patterns, gluing and finishing. Novices can effortlessly make simple mirrors, shelves, clocks and jewelry boxes, while those with slightly more advanced skills can try the small cupboard, blanket chest or side table. For outdoors, there are whimsical weather vanes, whirligigs, plant stands and trellises. Some of the sweetest items are just for kids, such as animal pull toys, wheeled cars, puzzles, a winged rocking chair, and vintage-style doll accessories. Every project includes finishes or surface decoration options, plus drawings and patterns.
Two best-selling books-now in one comprehensive volume! Together, The Art & Craft of Stonescaping and The Art & Craft of Stonework make up the best beginner-friendly guide available for anyone wanting to build stone walls (freestanding, retaining, dry-stacked or mortared), steps, benches, paths, patios and borders. Any duplication in the tools and technique chapters has been eliminated, while a brand-new gallery of projects offers ideas and inspiration. Featuring lots of how-to photos, informative illustrations, and practical projects, this giant resource is a must-have for homeowners' reference libraries.

In 2009, tastemaker and best-selling author Lena Corwin turned the top floor of her Brooklyn brownstone into a studio and began hosting classes for local crafters. In Lena Corwin's Made by Hand, she re-creates and builds upon her popular workshop series in order to reach crafters in Brooklyn and beyond. For this "best of" collection, she has chosen expert teachers and her favorite projects: Jenny Gordy introduces us to knitted socks and elegantly sewn tops and dresses; Cal Patch teaches how to make a modern embroidery sampler as well as a braided rag rug; and Corwin herself presents her favorite screen-printing and stamping techniques. In total, there are 26 lessons and projects, all presented with step-by-step photos and illustrations.
In today's high-tech society, even the most advanced devices and systems are not fail-safe. Tools can break or wear out, batteries can go dead, and all sorts of malfunctions can render the modern conveniences we rely on totally useless. If quick replacements of failed items are not readily available, the ability to improvise and adapt in the workshop suddenly becomes very practical.
James Ballou, author of the best-selling Long-Term Survival in the Coming Dark Age, dramatically expands on the popular home workshop material in his first book to present a "makeshifter's" way of building and repairing things with only a pile of raw or salvaged materials, your hands and your mind. In this fascinating new book, he presents a wide range of unconventional, remarkably creative home workshop skills, including:

The Small-Scale Dairy includes everything you need to know in order to successfully produce nourishing, healthy, farm-fresh milk. Whether for home use, direct sale to the consumer, or sale to an artisanal cheesemaker, high-quality raw milk is a delicate, desirable product. Successful and sustainable production requires the producer to consider and tackle many details, ranging from animal care to microbiology to good hygienic practices-and, for those with commercial aspirations, business plans, market savvy and knowledge of the regulations.
Applicable to keepers of cows, goats or sheep, The Small-Scale Dairy offers a holistic approach that explores the relationships between careful, conscientious management and the production of safe, healthy and delicious milk. A historical overview offers readers a balanced perspective on the current regulatory environment in which raw milk lovers find themselves.
Included are options for designing a well-functioning small dairy, choosing equipment and understanding myriad processes-such as the use of low-temperature pasteurization where raw milk sales are prohibited. Whether you have a one-cow home dairy, a 50-goat operation or are simply a curious consumer, The Small-Scale Dairy is an accessible and invaluable resource for achieving your goals.

There has never been a better time to be making and selling great cheese. People worldwide are consuming more high-quality, handmade cheese than ever before. The number of artisan cheesemakers has doubled in recent years, and many of the industry's newcomers are "farmstead" producers-those who work only with the milk of their own animals. Today, more than ever before, the people who choose to become farmer- cheesemakers need access to the knowledge of established cheese artisans who can help them build their dream.
Few career choices lead to such extremes of labor, emotion and monetary challenge. In The Small-Scale Cheese Business (originally published as The Farmstead Creamery Advisor in 2010), respected cheesemaker, instructor and speaker Gianaclis Caldwell walks would-be producers through the many, and often confusing, steps and decisions they will face when considering a career in this burgeoning cottage industry. This book fills the gap that exists between the pasture and cheese plate. It goes far beyond issues of caring for livestock and basic cheesemaking, explaining business issues such as:
