Spruce: A Step-by-Step Guide to Upholstery and Design (Book Trailer)

3,118 views 10 months ago
When Amanda Brown set out to learn the art of upholstery in 2007, she had a few classes and not much else in her tool belt. Now, armed with her successful furniture redesign studio, Spruce, in Austin, Texas, Amanda has translated her experience into the kind of resource she wished she'd had when she was starting out.

Spruce: A Step-by-Step Guide to Upholstery and Design, available from Storey Publishing in October 2013, is a one-of-a-kind volume that covers everything from coil springs to interior design, guiding you through six upholstery projects from start to finish. With over 900 step-by-step photographs and detailed instructions, Spruce will empower anyone who has an eye for design and a hankering for breathing life into an old piece of furniture to do it themselves.

Hatching & Brooding Your Own Chicks Play

If you want to incubate, hatch, and brood chicks yourself, rather than buying them from a hatchery, Gail Damerow's guide, Hatching & Brooding Your Own Chicks, is all you'll need. In her book, poultry authority Gail Damerow explains exactly how to hatch healthy baby chickens, ducklings, goslings, turkey poults, and guinea keets, addressing everything from selecting a breed and choosing the best incubator to ensuring proper set-up and sanitary conditions, understanding embryo development, and feeding and caring for newborn chicks in a brooder.

Gail has created three specific and informative videos on: Custom Brooders, Tote Brooders, and Incubators. In these videos she gives viewers a tour of her custom brooding facility; shows a solution for providing gentle, radiant heat and adequate ventilation in tote brooders; and helps poultry raisers choose the best incubator for their needs.

Damerow's videos are the perfect companion to her indispensable reference, Hatching & Brooding Your Own Chicks — for any poultry raiser, whether you want to hatch three eggs or one hundred.
