An easy-to-use introduction to techniques and tools, Woodworking Simplified lays the groundwork necessary for anyone to build a simple project from wood - be it birdhouse or a tool chest - and to do it safely, while learning a relaxing and rewarding hobby. The book starts with a section on getting down to basics: design and planning tips, facts to know about wood, and how to pick our best lumber. The second part of the book discusses basic tools and the proper way to use them. The last section includes plans for 19 simple yet practical projects.
