Finding straightforward, step-by-step and attractive projects is a constant challenge for the "weekend woodworker." Now, Phillip Gardner has designed a range of fun, original and contemporary projects sure to keep home-based carpenters busy for months. Projects range from smaller items--such as a stylish CD rack, mailbox, picture rail shelf and birdhouse--then progress to larger, easy-to-assemble projects such as a wall cupboard, child's bed, computer workstation or coffee table. Each project provides clear and easy step-by-step instructions, photographs and diagrams. They can be made with either hand or power tools. In addition, the author provides a comprehensive reference section, describing tools, techniques and wood choices, which is both ideal for the expert and indispensable for the beginner.
