This is the popular, one-stop, starting-from-scratch, fully illustrated furniture-making sourcebook that novice woodworkers want. There’s no need to have loads of experience and expensive lumber to make attractive furniture: just a few 2x4 boards will do to make pieces as good as anything on the market, and these no-nonsense instructions outline the techniques so clearly that even beginners will follow the instructions easily. They’ll learn how to select lumber, work with it once they get it home, make the cuts and simple joints required, and create cabinets, shelves, desks, tables, chests, and more. Over twenty projects range from an elegant armoire to a practical kitchen cabinet. There are complete materials lists, numbered illustrations, and full-color photos of each finished project.
