Have you ever heard it said, "We all have a book in our heart?" Have you ever said, "I should write a book about that!" Have you ever heard it said, "A picture is worth a 1,000 words?" That's what this book is all about... Helping you... Yes, You! That's what I said, "YOU." On Amazon when you "Search Books" for "The Village Carpenter Publishing House" you will find that we have published 120 books, at least that's what it says today. We have other books submitted that are not cleared for public reading just yet. But we find within our list of books... There is a most interesting book listed. It's, The Village Carpenter: The Classic Memoir of the Life of a Victorian Craftsman by Walter Rose. There also listed is a review called, "One of my very favorite books, August 2, 2012 By Kari A. Hultman, Lemoyne, PA United States. This review is from: The Village Carpenter: The Classic Memoir of the Life of a Victorian Craftsman. The Village Carpenter is a book that I wished would never end. The author writes about carpentry and working in his grandfather's shop in Victorian England, at a time when the carpenter was vital to the life of the village and whose duties encompassed a much broader range of skills and projects than what we think of as carpentry today. The village carpenter in the late 19th c. was responsible for building everything from windows & doors to coffins to fences & gates to furniture to buckets & washboards and more. He was a thread that tied the community together, often having to work on sight, gaining an intimate understanding of the villagers in whose homes he would work for weeks on end. Walter Rose eloquently recounts stories about the men who worked in the shop, their tools, their projects, and their interaction with the villagers. Here is an excerpt from his book: {As publisher of this book... Here are 2 examples we want you to Read... Re-Read... And Read it again} '"It is in the workshop and at the bench that an insight into the soul of wood craftsmanship can be truly gained. There are tools, there is the wood--rude planks, ungarnished, their surface scored with the saw. Between them, and without which each is useless, must come the soul and spirit of the designer and craftsman; the deft hands prompted by an alert mind; the knowledge attained only through years of study and service; the creative instinct and ability that will, by the correct use of the tools, transform the mere plank into a thing of usefulness and beauty--possibly a joy for ever."' {See how the words were crafted together... Just like a carpenter building a window or a washboard. Walter Rose started out just like YOU. The review continues...} The entire book is filled with memorable passages and woodworking wisdom that has since been forgotten but is still relevant. He reflects on the personality of wood and the connection between the carpenter and his tools--a connection so absolute, that the same tool in another woodworker's hands would not respond the same. It's a must-read for anyone who is passionate about woodworking or who would like to gain insight into the soul of a woodworker." We are honored to have '"The Village Carpenter: The Classic Memoir of the Life of a Victorian Craftsman by Walter Rose" listed with our over 119 books on Amazon. There is another author we want point out. John Steinbeck writes, "Alicia, I wish I could tell you about these pilots. They make me sick with envy. They ride their vehicles the way a man controls a fine, well-trained quarter horse. They weave along streambeds, rise like swallows to clear trees, they turn and twist and dip like swifts in the evening." {See too... How John Steinbeck writes the words and crafts them together... Just like a musician; as he puts it, playing their controls like music. John Steinbeck started out just like YOU.} I also started out just like you... Just like Walter Rose... Just like John Steinbeck... YOU can do it!

Technical Artefacts: Creations Of Mind And Matter

RRP $491.99

This book presents an attempt to understand the nature of technical artefacts and the way they come into being. Its primary focus is the kind of technical artefacts designed and produced by modern engineering. In spite of their pervasive influence on human thinking and doing, and therefore on the modern human condition, a philosophical analysis of technical artefacts and engineering design is lacking. Among the questions addressed are: How do technical artefacts fit into the furniture of the universe? In what sense are they different from objects from the natural world, or from the social world? What kind of activity is engineering design and what does it mean to say that technical artefacts are the embodiment of a design? Does it make sense to consider technical artefacts to be morally good or bad by themselves because of the way they influence human life?

The book advances the thesis that technical artefacts, conceived of as physical constructions with a technical function, have a dual nature; they are hybrid objects combining physical and intentional features. It proposes a theory of technical functions and technical artefact kinds that does justice to this dual nature, analyses engineering design from the dual nature point of view, and argues that technical artefacts, because of their dual nature, have inherent moral significance.

Furniture gives the room the warmth and feeling of its kind. Ever entered a room without furniture in it?

Well, even if the room is made from the best materials around the world; it will look like something is amiss. That is the gap filled by furniture being when installed. It makes the room full of life and glamour. However, it is not all about the furniture but the look of the furniture. How well furnished is the furniture in your room? How regularly do you do clean ups and, of course, the age of the furniture.

The age of the furniture contributes a lot to the loss of value and diminished appearance. Many choose to throw away such to provide space for others which is a bad idea given that the era we are living is sustainable enough to repair or refurbish to give it a new look and improved shape. Regardless of whether you want to update or bring back the old furniture to life, think about refurbishing and repair.
