Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 157990047X, Paperback)

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.

This is a "can-do" book that will encourage beginners to build finished outdoor furniture and fixtures of simple but pleasing design and solid functionality, and there is nothing to stop an enthusiastic woodworker from embellishing, enhancing, or customizing any of these projects to suit individual taste or fantasies. --Mark A. Hetts
