5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure!
This book contains different projects for different skill levels. With some plans the author has used original items seen or bought at antique flee markets and converted these into plans. This gives you many vintage and unique ideas for projects. The drawings are abslolutely easy to understand. This book gives me great joy and I am planing to realize many of the featured...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners
I was looking for a book that would get me started with small woodwork projects. I expected suggestions of tools that would be useful to have and no knowledge assumed. This book will probably be useful after I have learnt the basic terms and techniques, otherwise it's too advanced for me.

Full of very good ideas to fill in some time in the shed, my husband says. Took a little time to get over from the USA but is worth it.

This review is from: The Big Book of Weekend Woodworking (Big Book of ... Series) (Paperback)
I bought this for a present and was surprised at how big the book really is. I know the title is 'Big Book' but it was thicker than I expected. There are plenty of little projects in here to keep some-one going for quite a while so hopefully the person I bought it for loves it too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots to do!, 9 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Big Book of Weekend Woodworking (Big Book of ... Series) (Paperback)
Loads of things to make with big bright pictures and detailed instructions. A worthwhile addition to my workshop. only reason I have said 4* not 5* and this is just my opinion and you may like it, but though there are many different design to make quite a few are just different finishes of the same thing e.g. a bunch of clocks. Now saying that they are different and others prefer other designs but I don't want to make loads of the same things. So on the whole it is a great book, but could use a little more variety. (But I guess it would work a treat if you are making pressies for other people)
