Norwegian Wood: Chopping Stacking and Drying Wood the Scandinavian Way — Lars Mytting

My friend and business partner Steve gave me this book after he came back from a trip he’d been on. It was incredible. A weird mixture of technical manual and philosophical thesis on the catharsis of simple things. There were a healthy number of Walden references and a closing chapter to make you cry. In between I learnt about a whole load of interesting wood related things. Did you know a forest swells with a full moon? This has actually been proved by science. A forest kind of has tides.
