No Discussion or Explanation of Fundamentals 26 Jan. 2012
By LJT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book with high expectations given the glowing reviews of David Stiles other books. I am a complete novice when it comes to carpentry/woodwork so I was hoping for a book that clearly explained the basic fundamentals for constructing a safe childrens' fort - for example, post anchoring options, structurally safe frame design principles/ratios, options for joining timber, decking basics, roofing options, safe access point design (timber & rope ladders, slides, climbing walls), finishing/water proofing, maintenance, etc. This book discusses none of these issues. Given a children's fort needs to safely support several kids above the ground while other children are potential directly underneath, I didn't feel confident to proceed after reading this book. It is basically a book of illustrated plans with limited instruction. If you are already competent with building (eg decks & fences) this book offers some good inspiration. If you're not confident with these basics, you're likely to desire a book which offers more guidance & explanation. I have now ordered some books from the "Black & Decker" series which I hope will help.
Fun project ideas 13 Dec. 2012
By Mike Dunnington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like this book for fun ideas for projects, but find some of the plans to be tough to follow. Ended up using it more as a starting project for our backyard fort, but would totally recommend getting it!

Another great "how-to" from David Stiles 24 Aug. 2011
By HT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
We have loved all of David and Jeanie Stiles's how-to books and were excited to get this newest addition. My particular favorite was the pirate fort complete with cannon and flags. This book is full of wonderful ideas, from simple to more difficult, with all the instructions needed to complete each project. Thanks to David for bringing out the kid in us all!
