Projects range from easy ones for beginners to ambitious undertakings for experienced carpenters. Each begins with a list of essential tools, and then proceeds with a drawn-to-scale diagram of the item and full-color, step-by-step photos with explanatory captions for completing the undertaking. Just some of the many projects include: Hanging kitchen wall rack (for beginners) ... Arts and crafts wall mirror (for beginners) ... Turned fruit bowl (intermediate level) ... Kitchen trolley (intermediate level) ... Bathroom cabinet (advanced level) ... Adjustable porch chair (advanced level).
