Review:

Truly the best woodworking book that I have ever owned. I refer to it time and again. It covers all of the basics as well as more in depth woodworking techniques.

The feature that really makes it a must have reference is the method in which they list all possible ways to handle the same task. Looking for the best method for a drawer slide or door panel? Take your pick from the numerous listed.

Review:

This book is ideal for the would-be woodworker who has the desire, but may not have the know-how or experience, to build simple, attractive outdoor furniture and garden accessories. Using the step-by-step plans and measurements, anyone willing to work with a hammer and saw can use inexpensive lumber to build some downright elegant chairs, mailboxes, birdhouses, stools, tables, a lattice bower, a potting bench, a planter, a loveseat, and many, many more items. Before launching into the individual projects, the author starts with the basics of materials and supplies, tools, techniques and safety tips; explains how to choose wood for the projects; lays out lumber dimensions and grades; interprets the differences between finishes and stains; describes the different fasteners and screws used in any of the prescribed projects; and gives the reader useful tips on cutting and sanding techniques, along with sound advice on safety needed for any woodworking project.

Review:

Excellent for the beginner! Need a good, detailed, simple-to-construct Adirondack chair plan? This is it. (Wish I'd had this book in 1997 when I made my first Adirondakc chairs.) No patterns to enlarge. Everything is made with stock lumber. Great pictures (B&W), very basic design, step-by-step instructions. And once you understand the basic Adirondack chair construction, you can tweak it anyway you want. Directions included are for a Adirondack chair, footrest, table, and bench. No fancy tools needed either!
