If your interests weigh towards simple outdoors tools and decorations, then this might be the book for you. The more general smiths, however, would be better off buying Andrew's 'Edge of the Anvil', Weygers' 'The Complete Modern Blacksmith', or even Streeter's 'Professional Smithing'.
All in all a thoughtful book I like it.
For future buys convenience I'll list the books table of contents and a brief note about each project:
1 Set of punches and chisels (generally describes how to make metal working chisels and what they should look like
2 woodcutting tools (similar to metal chisels. Really only covers wood working chisels.)
3 garden tools (how to make shovels, trowels, hoes, rakes, crowbars, etc. Most of which is basically "bend metal to desired shape and attach to handle as shown".)
4 plant pot hanger (this chapter covers making a bracket for hanging on a wall and a hanging container for a plant or flower. It also covers some basic scroll work, using a scroll jig, but this is pretty basic and their are much better tutorials on youtube.)
5 plant stands ( more or less the same as above, but standing version.
6 yard seat(unbelievably simple garden/park bench. If you could make the plant pot hanger you should be able to do this no problem.
7 trestles (basically a non-ornate version of the bench that comes in two parts. You may not actually need anyting more then a drill and thin bar steel to do this project.)
8 outdoor table (more of the same scroll work, but if forms a simple table.)
9 glass top table (more elaborate, but similar table with more scroll work.)
10 Pokers (interesting ideas for fire pokers. Neat handles designs and instructions on how to make them.Read more ›
