The Big Book of Weekend Woodworking, Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Every woodworker will want to own this colorful, information-packed, mammoth resource for weekend crafting.

It's filled with 150 classic projects, and features an introductory section that walks readers through the various planning stages.

It's all covered: selecting the right wood, working with patterns, gluing, and finishing.

Novices can effortlessly make simple mirrors, shelves, clocks, and jewelry boxes, while those with slightly more advanced skills can try the small cupboard, blanket chest, or side table.

For outdoors, there are whimsical weathervanes, whirligigs, plants stands, and trellises.

Some of the sweetest items are just for kids, such as animal pull toys, wheeled cars, puzzles, a winged rocking chair, and vintage-style doll accessories.

Every project include finishes or surface decoration options, plus drawings and patterns.

Review by

This book is very well done with descriptions and diagrams on how to build all 150 projects in the book. Personally I have a long list of items that I want to make from here. The author also spends quite a bit of time giving helpful hints and time savers for the projects listed and can be applied to other projects as well.I found this book to be well worth the money I spent and now I have many weekends worth of projects to have fun experimenting.
