Using simple techniques, Tuscany-based woodworkers Samina Langholz and Andrea Brugi teach you how to make beautiful wood objects for the home. In these simple photographic steps, you will learn how to make a chopping board featuring a hand-carved "butterfly" - an old trick for stabilising a crack. This is a project that does not require complicated tools, and can be done easily in the home. Suitable for all levels of expertise - even the complete beginner - these simple and accessible step-by-step instructions are accompanied by stunning 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 inspiring you to recreate them in your home.
This project is taken from the book Woodworking: Traditional Craft for Modern Living by Samina Langholz and Andrea Brugi, published by Jacqui Small (The Quarto Group).
