Most woodworkers have to wait a while to use wood cut from a tree. It needs to either have a trip to a kiln or spend some time in a stack to get its moisture content down.
Then, there are woodworkers who take the wood directly from the tree to build their creations. At Greenwoodworking, Jennie Alexander takes readers through the techniques of working with wood fresh from the tree and shows a host of projects that can be made from green wood.
Sure, it takes a little bit more thought and consideration when working with the fresh stuff, but the results are well worth it.
