One of the most important workbench plans ever published appeared in A.J. Roubo's 18th-century masterwork -L'Art Du Menuisier- (The Art of the Craftsman). Roubo's simple and hulking workbench offers everything that the modern woodworker needs in a bench, whether you use hand tools, power tools, or both. Roubo's bench is simpler than almost every other design out there--so it's easy to build--yet it excels at all of the workholding tasks in a workshop. In this DVD, Christopher Schwarz shows you how to build the Roubo workbench using only hand tools (though you can use power tools if you wish). Schwarz, the author of Workbenches: From Design & Theory to Construction & Use (Popular Woodworking Books) also shares his insights into this influential workbench form, which he has been using exclusively since 2005.

Some 45 years ago, the late Robert Hart had a vision of planting a small food-producing forest that could fulfill the needs of a healthy diet and at the same time create a beautiful and ecologically sound environment. Having explored Hartâ€™s practical and philosophical ideas, this film goes on to look at two other projects inspired by the principles of forest gardening and perennial vegetable growing. On a windy plot in Cornwall, Ken Fern has set up Plants for a Future, where he grows 1,500 species of useful perennial plants (and maintains information on a further 5,500 in his database). And a few miles north of London, Mike and Julia Guerra have created a tiny garden as an inspiration to anyone wanting to â€œact locally.â€ Anyone looking for small, practical solutions to world problems will find this DVD both useful and inspiring.
