5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book that would look good on any coffee table
I can not speak highly enough of this book.

Highly original and beautifully written - each project is clearly laid out and easy to follow.

All the materials are easy to acquire and there are plenty of excellent tips that makes each project a joy to work on.

I have made several of the pieces of furniture and each has been successful. I...

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm beyond this book when it comes to DIY
The pictures in this book were well done but when it comes to the ideas; they are simple, some require specialised tools while others are an unnecessary amount of work for a minimal amount of return. The best thing about this book is the fact that it inspires me that I could write a much better book with much better ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book that would look good on any coffee table, 31 July 2013

I can not speak highly enough of this book.

Highly original and beautifully written - each project is clearly laid out and easy to follow.

All the materials are easy to acquire and there are plenty of excellent tips that makes each project a joy to work on.

I have made several of the pieces of furniture and each has been successful. I particularly enjoyed making the Breezy Table which now sits proudly in our living room.

The illustrations of the projects and the photographs are of the highest quality.

I am sure that everyone that buys this book will rediscover the joy of woodworking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gift for famously 'cynical' brother, 31 Oct 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As the title suggests, I bought this as a gift for my brother; an inveterate DIYer who is often damning of other people's efforts and advice. It was his reaction that made me realise I was on to a winner. He's already earmarked at least three of the projects on his 'To Do before Christmas' list - I wouldn't be surprised to see the dog kennel adorning our garden on the morning of the 25th!

Each project is explained in clear language; a lack of jargon is something I always look for when buying a 'how to' book. That said, the author doesn't patronise the reader and the photographs/illustrations only add to the feeling that anybody with a tiny bit of skill could produce something of beauty; the sun lounger being a case in point.

I cannot recommend this book enough - a well deserved five stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the absolute beginner!, 25 Aug 2013
I always wanted to make something from scratch but didn't know where to start. Plus, none of the woodworking books I found ever had anything in them I really wanted in my home. Finally a book full of pieces I would LoVe to have! I'm starting with the plant arbour and finding the instructions really helpful and easy follow. Fantastic book!
