BOOK
  Woodworking Simplified

Learn Carpentry by Making These Useful, Easy-to-Build Projects.

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 materials 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, a set of bookshelves.

David Stiles and Jeanie are the co-authors of three other WEEKEND PROJECT BOOKS: Playhouses You Can Build, Kid's Furniture You Can Build and Garden Projects You Can Build. David, a designer/builder, is the author of eight other how-to books, including Sheds. Jeanie Trusty Stiles is an actress/model and instructor of English. They divide their time between New York City and East Hampton, New York.
