As the title implies, this book covers every aspect of woodworking, from the initial design to a completed project. The first half shows how to set up a workshop, describes the species and types of wood, and covers nearly every commonly used woodworking tool and technique. The latter half offers a variety of plans that include household accessories, furniture, outdoor projects, and workshop furnishings. The well-designed projects include excellent instructions supplemented by clear illustrations and are perfect for woodworkers of all skill levels. If you are going to buy only one woodworking book, this should be it. Recommended for every public library. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
