Nick's Big Bushcraft Book Clearance

Sunday, 16 January 2011 00:00

I would like to tell you about a wonderful website, blog and generous man called Nick Gallop...

Over the Christmas period I was lucky enough to spot an interesting post in Nick's Blog at where as part of Nick's downsizing he was giving away lots of superb outdoorsy/Bushcraft books for free.

A very generous act and a beautiful way of passing on skills & knowledge, I don't doubt that his actions will inspire many over time.

I completely support Nick's mission with his website and highly recommend you check his site out and perhaps subscribe to his email newsletter. This is his mission...

Here is one of the books I received from Nick, I will post about the other two later on.

Living Wood


"From buying a woodland to making a chair"


A book about Green woodworking, Chair Bodging, Building Pole-lathes & other woodworking tools.

I've started reading this book first as I'm sure I will find it inspiring, I'm only a fraction of the way into this book but I'm already whittling more!

Building a pole-lathe is one of those things that is on my "list of things to do one day".. and you never know with the good diagrams and instructions in this book it might just get me making and using one soon.

Cleaving, trimming, sawing, chopping & carving... if your interested in learning more about working wood then this is the book for you.

Remember to checkout
