5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent project plans October 21, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Only had one day to look this over, but it is filled with excellent project plans of all types. The projects vary in difficulty and any woodworker could fine something to make from this book. Even the plans that call for high skill techniques could be easily adapted for simpler skills. Some plans call for specific components from various suppliers. I.E. clock mechanisms. If specific parts are not available, the plans look like they can be adapted for what is available. Overall a great book to get ideas and plan.

2.0 out of 5 stars Way to simplified December 3, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The title "Weekend Woodworkers Project Collection" is a rank beginners book with projects for literally a weekend. I was hoping for some simple projects but this is filled with clocks, picture frames, frames, boxes, mirrors. Only 2 projects were somewhat interesting 3 bookcases. If you need tables, dressers, beds, or chairs: look elsewhere. Very little info on finishing, tips. "Mission Furniture You Can Build" is somewhat better but the pictures are poorly printed and are clearly dated. Good tips on "getting Started" covering joints, some history, finishes. More projects on actual furniture and thankfully less frames, wall hangings, clocks, etc. I would give it a 3 star.
