I have made some very good furniture from this book. I did not use the plans in detail since some of it was a bit complicated. Did however came up with a media center for the living room, a computer desk for my office and now I am working on a desk for my wife. This is a must have book if you are just getting into wood working or if you are a pro. If you are a beginner I would take a wood working safety class, it's worth every penny.

I found this book to go into really good detail, but for how to perform some of the cuts and jig setup it would say refer to chapters 1 or 2. This wouldn't be a problem except there are no chapters in the book only the plans. This left huge gaps in how to perform some of the complex jig setups or cuts.

This book is not up to the level of Danny's prior book on how to build cabinets. The projects are too simple and far too basic. The idea is good but needs to expand to the next level of challenge. Would love a how to by Dan Proulx taken to the next level on how to build all sorts of furniture on say the shaker style.

This is one the best straight forward instructive, practical,furniture books I have ever seen. However, there are quite a bit of things you will need to buy in the way of wood working tools. The good news is that a person can accumulate these things as the opportunities come along. Many of the furniture projects can be made with basic tools such as a circular saw, clamps, and a good cordless drill. If you are into wood projects and can picture yourself investing a little time and money to make some beautiful, and practical projects, this book is valuable to you!

Didn't like the finish of the majority of the projects. Only like two or three of them. It's about the appearance...many of them look cheap because the material used. The procedures -changing the material used- might be useful.

Well written and straight forward book. I am a complete beginner and I found this book very useful. In fact, I used it to build my very first woodworking project. Some of the steps are spelled out specifically, that is, they are implied but aren't explicit in the text. The only other critique is some projects refer to intermediate steps done in another 'chapter' that doesn't exist in this book. In neither of the above cases, however, did these errors or omissions keep me from being able to follow the text and complete my prototype for an eventual oak end table.

It is a good book with nice pictures, but some of the projects aren't the nicest. I don't know how you can build the projects with simple tools like they say you can, I needed a planer, jointer ect. The desk I am building also had several mistakes in the plans and doesn't show you how to do everything. But it is coming along ok.
