Make your garden more productive, your garden chores easier, and your outdoor spaces more enjoyable!

With a little time and a few tools, you can create handsome, handcrafted items for your garden at a fraction of the cost of buying them in stores. The Vegetable Gardener's Book of Building Projects offers 39 simple projects, from cold frames to compost bins, planters to picnic tables, trellises to tool storage. Each project was selected by Storey's editors to be functional, attractive, and easy to complete. For each one, you'll find step-by-step instructions, detailed illustrations, complete materials and lumber lists, and a four-color photo of the finished product. Many of the projects can be done by beginners, and most can be completed in a few hours.

Whether you need support for your beans and peas or a comfortable chair to relax in when the work is done, these projects are just what you're looking for.
