I brought the first book of the Home improvement library series about a year ago. The book is very informative and the photo illustration is excellent. Therefore when I need some wood working DIY this book is my first choice. This book is a step to step guide to build projects, each project list with material list and require tools. Not many word on the wood basic and technique. If you want to have some weekend work, this is the book. Here is the list of projects and you can check it out. Easy-Umbrella stand, Mirrored coat rack, Mitten chest, Entry Valet, Mission windows seat. Living room - bookshelf, two-tier bookshelf, liquor locker, humidor cabinet, tile-top coffee table, plant stand. Family room - bookcase, library table, card table, game table, table/chair, sideboard. Home office - drafting stool, writing desk, secretary topper, nesting office, wastebasket. Bedroom - room divider, cedar chest, nightstand, armoire, mission lamp base. Kitchen - pine pantry, wine & stemware cart, utility cart, recycling center, gateleg table.

Format: Paperback
That was the main allure for me. I went shopping and bought some nice hand tools to get started in woodworking. I figured that if I wound up not liking it, I would still have useful hand (power) tools for around-the-house type stuff. Well, I got hooked. You'll make some mistakes, and quickly see the value of a table saw, but you will see what you're capable of and hunger for more. Most of the projects are glued and screwed together, with plugs to conceal the screw holes, so "serious" woodworkers don't consider this a serious book. But it is nice because you get gratification fairly quickly. Even though these projects are built of high grade plywood and S4S lumber, they're still sturdier and higher quality than the cheap particle board crap that is sold at Wal*Mart. Give it a try. You'll like it. It will reel you into our world. ;)

I ordered this book thinking I had probably wasted my money again. But after getting it I was please. I was trying to build a wine cabinet-rack. I had ordered plans for one and they sucked. After getting this book which has easy to understand directs I did kind of combine them both but the book was by far the best. If I don't use anything else out of it, it's still worth the money.

I bought this book for my boyfriend and it is well worth the money. There are many many projects - very practical ones like a night stand, table, bench, etc. But there are also projects like a wine cart and an island. ...

Format: Paperback
Using basic power tools (saws, sanders and drills) the average home wood worker can build an assortment of wood projects for the kitchen, office, bedroom or family room. Using either stock pine or hard wood, most of these projects are easy to build.

I didn't see any project that seemed too difficult, and although I wouldn't build all of these things, several looked very appealing. The plans are easy to follow and there is explanatory text. They can also be modified in their dimentions to suit the builders needs.

The book is somewhat of an advertisement for Black & Decker tools, but any good power or hand tools will work just as well. This is a pretty good book for the handy man.

I bought this book a while ago and have made several of the items in it including a couple of the cedar chests and the table. Overall this is a great book for beginners. The projects only require a circular saw a sander a jig saw and basic tools. This is a good introduction into woodworking. The stuff isn't fancy but it is homemade and that is a satisfying feeling to know that you made your own furniture.
