SlöjdCover

Jögge Sundqvist’s “Slöjd in Wood” ships from the printer on Thursday, and will soon thereafter mail to the many of you who’ve already ordered (thank you!).

Here’s a palate-tickler of a PDF excerpt for download and enjoyment while you wait: PegBoard2

Don’t know what this book is about? Here’s some of the text from the back cover:

Slöjd in Wood” inspires and teaches you how to start with green wood to make
functional and fun traditional household objects. With an axe and a small set of
knives, you can make your own spoons, ladles, spatulas, bowls, butter knives,
shrink boxes, cabinet knobs, walking sticks, cutting boards, stools and more.
You’ll discover the tools you need (and how to keep them sharp), how to select
and process your materials and what wood species are best for every type of slöjd
object. “Slöjd in Wood” includes everything you must know about riving green
wood and drying it properly, then carving, painting and finishing it in the slöjd
tradition. A special “Knife Grips” section includes detailed instructions and
illustrations to help you learn the various grips needed for safe, efficient and fun
slöjd work.”

The lusciously photographed and illustrated book is printed on heavyweight matte paper with a hard cover and built-to-last sewn binding. It is 116 pages, and, like all Lost Art Press books, printed in the United States.

We don’t know which retailers will opt to carry the book (we hope all of them will), but we will update you here when we have more information.

Note that on “Slöjd in Wood,” a translation, we do not have electronic rights (so we cannot offer a full PDF version).

  1. I believe there’s a period missing in the second paragraph of the first page of the “palate tickler”, after “time-saving”.

    CAN’T KEEP UP!

    You are making such exquisite books that i can’t keep up! Even worse because of my poor english skills: can not read fast. I am also reading again the ones from Chris (Anarchists…)

    Still have to buy the last form Chris, Mechanics…

    Damn … i am now on a special budget just for LAP…

    cheers to all

    That pegboard is just delightful. (The PDF worked fine for me, BTW.) And the page design, drawings, font, etc. are enviable. #fitzrules

  7. craig regan says:

    This book should come with a slöjd knife attached to the cover, then readers could play along with Jögge, wile reading his text.

    • boclocks says:

      Great idea! I’ve got about 4 or 5 slöjd knives. Can’t have too many!

      • craig regan says:

        Where did you get your knives?
        Some of the slöjd knives online are expensive and on back order.
