I love books, especially those that tell me how to make something that I want to have but don't want to purchase. Yes, I like to do everything the "hard way". So, here is a book that I just found:
It is so interesting that I just came upon this because I've been searching for a wooden wash tub. Since they cost about $350, I gave that up and started searching for barrels that I could possibly cut in half. Those are only about $99 but think of all the silk I could buy with that. Finally, I gave up the search.... for the time being. And now I stumble upon a resource to make one myself.
Now, I just have to decide if the price is right for the book or if I want to try and find youtube video tutorials instead.
