I am a real beginner. After watching this DVD, I think I could actually produce an interesting item of furniture. Doug gives you several projects, both tables and seating, in rustic and twig styles. His manner is informal and friendly. It's as if you dropped by his place on a Sat. and hung around with him while he showed you how to make stuff. He explains things in a clear, easy to understand way and gives you tips about woodworking that will be handy as your skill level improves. Most of the projects don't require more tools than the average garage would have on hand.
