Overview

Children's furniture can be fun, functional, and affordable if you build it yourself. Featuring more than a dozen projects that can be put together from easily obtained materials and common tools, with clear diagrams and color phtographs that illustrate every step of the way, many of these projects can be completed in a weekend or less by anyone by basic carpentry skills. The kids can even be involved with some aspects of construction. Projects include a crib, a room divider, a storage chair, a computer center, an art desk, a portable toy storage wagon, a lightweight footstool, and a portable folding table.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Children require a variety of special furnishings such as cribs and toy storage bins that must be durable, adaptable to different ages, safe, and affordable. The authors do a fine job of showing how to build furniture that fulfills these tough requirements. Projects include a crib, two beds, an art desk, a wagon, and a computer desk. The illustrations are clear and straightforward. Most of the examples can be constructed using basic tools, and the required materials can be found at the average home improvement center or lumberyard. The authors also include a fine "tool and technique" roundup, which is appropriate since the book is geared toward beginners. Highly recommended.-Jonathan Hershey, Akron-Summit Cty. PL, Ohio
