Summary by Steve Folkers, craft interpreter at the Ozark Folk Center "In Sweden and then in the United States, Wille Sundgvist has been a major force in preserving and teaching the fundamental craft of working wood, from the tree, with ax and knife. This 1990 classic covers characteristics, sharpening and handling of those two tools, the finding and using of wood, principles of design that include the tree and tool, and a half-dozen projects with emphasis on spoons."

“When it is understood that one loses joy and happiness in the attempt to possess them, the essence of natural farming will be realized. The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”
