Outdoor Woodworking Projects
Hearst Books, 2004 - Crafts & Hobbies - 208 pages
Beautiful projects; expert advice.
Woodworkers know that they can depend on Popular Mechanics for great ideas and workshop-tested techniques, and with this collection they can take their favorite hobby outdoors. From an old-fashioned porch swing to a white picket fence, these woodworking projects will enhance every garden, deck, and patio. In addition to detailed diagrams and photos, there’s a “Key Points” box for every project: it includes the prep, shop, and assembly times, skill level, cost/benefit ratio, and more. Build a Pretty Planter to show off flowers, shrubs and trees. A handy Garden Helper cart will let you roll right through the toughest jobs in your yard. Enjoy an al fresco meal on a comfortable outdoor dining set. Every project is beautiful, useful, and a pleasure to construct.
