This book provides a general overview of a number of projects, ranging from construction of housing to individual ornaments, in varying degrees of detail. To someone who is already familiar with techniques of construction, the project pages will provide useful ideas of what to do. However for beginners, most of the pages will be inadequate in terms of giving enough details to be successful.
