Overview

Blending the practicality of IKEA with the creativity of Martha Stewart, this collection of innovative projects is presented with simplicity of construction in mind. The suggested pieces are practical, have broad appeal, and carry a high brag factor upon completion. Requiring minimal assembly time and tools, this concise, engaging, and even humorous guide offers countless tips as well as clear and instructive photography. The majority of the projects also incorporate clever construction, such as the use of bifold doors, stock cabinets, and off-the-shelf lumber, guaranteeing that the required materials are both inexpensive and easily accessible. Featuring ideas for furnishing both the interior and the exterior of the home, this handbook is ideal for weekend woodworkers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"40 different projects, for every room of the house, and even some outdoor furniture . . . almost any reader will find 10 or 12 projects here that strike their fancy." —www.StartWoodworking.com (April 21, 2011)
Library Journal
Carlsen's (A Splintered History of Wood) delightful sense of humor shines in this easy woodworking project book. Designs, which range from supereasy to somewhat simple, take advantage of prefab materials, such as precut wood, crown molding, and closet doors, and the finished goods include standard shelves and plywood furniture. Scattered throughout are tips and tool techniques, but the focus of this book is not tool use instruction. Each project has a short supplies list but no difficulty ranking. With helpful instructions and illustrations, this beginner-friendly guide goes the extra mile to showcase clever designs and entertaining text. Highly recommended.
