Book Description

Home accents made with beautiful natural wood are hugely popular and add impact to any room of the house. But the simple elegance of a birch table lamp or a driftwood sculpture can carry an eye-watering price tag. Simply Wood shows you how to make beautiful and practical objects using found wood that doesn't cost the earth.

All you need are basic skills such as measuring, sawing, drilling and gluing to achieve each of the 20 projects. Choose from lighting and shelving to wreaths and wall hangings, and simply follow the clear, step-by-step instructions to make your chosen item.

Whether you are drawn to delicate twigs, graceful branches, sturdy logs, silvered driftwood or weathered boards, there is a project for you - be inspired, get creative and bring the beauty of nature into your home.

About the Author

About Linda Suster

Linda Suster is a mother of five who loves being out in her backyard workshop with her Hawaiian music and two doggie assistants. Getting into the driftwood business in 2012 was one of the best decisions she ever made, and she's loved every minute since. Linda loves combing the beaches all along the coast of California, and hopes you can enjoy a little piece of the beach at home using her book.



Features beautiful photography illustrating the projects in inspiring surroundings as well as in the making.


Very inspiring book with a range of projects to suit beginners to experts. You will need good woodwork skills for challenging projects. Very good instructions and photos. Recycling wood to make bespoke items is so good for the environment.


What a delightful book with lots of ideas to inspire the creative mind. Easy step-by-step instructions with photos to help make personalised gifts for friends and family. I cant wait to start my first project!
