Additional Information

Updated and Expanded!

Beginning woodworkers are constantly stymied by the apparent need for thousands of pounds worth of tools to start their hobby. Once they have the tool, they face a learning curve to understand how to use the tool. The next problem is finding wood to build the projects. Not everyone has a lumberyard nearby.

This book shows you how to build quality furniture projects that can be completed by any woodworker with a modest (but decent) kit of tools in less than two days of shop time, and using raw materials that are available at any home center. The enclosed tool manual explains all the tools and shows you how to perform the basic operations in a step-by-step format.

Great book with great ideas. To give you an idea about my skill level - I have built most of the furniature in our house using the Kreg jig and basic tools. These projects fit into that paradigm and will take you even farther. My test for whether or not I use the book is that I get at least five projects that are usefull and not repeated elsewhere. This book gave me my money's worth and more.
I've been wanting to do some simple DIY wood projects, like picture frames and shelves and eventually want to move on to bigger projects like a picnic table and chairs for my backyard. I also bought blogger Ana White's e-book "The Handbuilt Home" because I love her plans. White's book, however, isn't as detailed as this one is for getting started.

I like how this author spends a lot of time talking about the tools you should buy and how to use them. He has a lot of great advice and recommendations for what you should buy. The book is great for people just getting started.

On the other hand, I'm not too thrilled with the project plans. Several of the pieces are fairly old fashioned and not my style. I'm a 30-year old woman though so maybe I just don't fit the traditional archetype of "wood worker". That is why I have Ana White's book as well.

I would have liked to see a few more step-by-step photos, but he does have several for each project. Reading... Read more
What I liked is that it starts from the assumption that you don't know anything about woodworking (which is not too far off the mark). So it is a very gentle introduction to the tools, then each project includes discussion on the techniques being used. Which is refreshing compared to plans that say do X, and I may not know how to do X.

What is very helpful is that that it starts out by defining a minimum tool set, then every plan is based on the fact that you only have that set, so you will not get caught looking at plans that assume you have a equipment that reflected serious investment in money and space in your house. (to find the list, look for the "I can do that" section on the Popular Woodworking website. the "Free, online manual" is the tools chapter of this book.)

The plans are basic compared to many woodworking plans available. But this is because it purposely limits the equipment required and the plans are not chosen for the complexity,... Read more
