From the Back Cover
Making traditional wooden snowshoes is an old craft finding new life thanks to the growing popularity of snowshoeing as a winter sport, and to people like author and Legendary Maine Guide Gil Gilpatrick, who has been making them for years.
In Building Wooden Snowshoes & Snowshoe Furniture, you'll learn how to make a variety of snowshoes and furniture in the snowshoe style from Gilpatrick's years of experience. He will teach you how to bend and shape the wood, how to assemble all the parts, and how to lace them using updated materials. You will also learn how to select the size and style of shoe that is right for you, whether you want to casually hike trails for pleasure or trek through the backcountry.
If you can't stop at making just one pair of snowshoes, Gilpatrick includes detailed plans and patterns for building rustic snowshoe-style furniture such as an end table, rocker, footstool, and more—perfect for any rustic retreat.
