If you have an interest in producing your own Concrete Garden Ornaments you will be fascinated by this classic instructional book.

Here's a full review from an enthusiast:

"The measured drawings for making wooden molds are great, including ones for latticework concrete, but he even includes hollow molds with inner cores that come apart to be removed. This is way better than most. He gives on lot on applying cement like clay over wire forms.

As well, he includes a technique I haven't seen elsewhere: letting concrete dry "leather hard" as ceramicists say, then carving it like wood, not only for its own sake but for inletting tiles. His detail on the effects of different aggregates, acid wash, &c, makes this a whole new game for someone who enjoys making pots and planters but doesn't have a big kiln.

Yes, there's also the information on walls and kerbs, copings and footings, balustrades and garden seats (which can be quite an art themselves). There's everything here you need to make your garden or someone else's beautiful in a lasting material."

These 2 books come on a FULLY PRINTED DVD in strong plastic slip case, and could be with you in 48 hours.

All ready for gift giving or keeping.
