Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The tricks here have appeared in Fine Homebuilding's ``Tips and Techniques'' and ``Q & A'' columns, both based on reader submissions. The hundreds of one-to two-paragraph tips and techniques that take up more than half the book cover such projects as building sawhorses, fabricating handy containers of every sort, and optimizing tool storage in a pickup truck. The ideas are mostly practical and often wonderfully improvisational. The remaining section addresses specific building problems submitted by readers and answered by other readers or editorial consultants in the ``Q & A'' column. These problems are larger in scope and address such issues as ridding basements of radon, solving moisture problems, retrofitting insulation, and more. A browser's delight for amateur and professional builders; recommended for popular how-to collections.-Bill Demo, Tompkins Cortland Community Coll., Dryden, N.Y.
