There is a long American tradition of furniture made directly from raw twigs or sticks. American willow-twig furniture and the Adirondack style are well-known types. Paul Ruhlmann teaches and works in a style that is closer to Adirondack. He gathers saplings of red maple and buckthorn (he does his New England environment a favor by culling these invasive trees), peels them, joins them (he invented a tool that makes instant tenons on sticks), and finishes them simply. Ruhlmann makes all sorts of furniture, but especially beautiful chairs with refined Shaker lines and woven seats that have a bit of the frontier about them. This video will teach you the entire process, including how to select the parts of your project from raw sticks and how to steam-bend posts when necessary, as well as making the joints, finishing, and weaving.
