Overview

A SIMPLE, EASY-TO-USE introduction to techniques and tools, Woodworking Simplified lays the groundwork necessary for anyone to build a simple project from wood-be it a birdhouse or a toolbox-and to do it safely, while learning a relaxing and rewarding hobby.

The book starts with a section on getting down to basics: design and planning tips, facts to know about wood, what measurements on building material really mean, and how to pick out the best lumber. The second part of the book discusses basic tools and the proper way to use them. The last section includes plans for 19 simple yet practical projects: a sawhorse, a nail box, a toy chest, and a set of bookshelves.
