Yay!.....all those things that I wanted and never got around to buying for myself.....my husband can make me!! For example, a letter rack, spaghetti guage, recipe book holder and my salad utensils and meat tenderizer amongst other things. This book has some beautiful little things in it all to be made from offcuts which would normally be thrown away by many people. It would be great to make some smaller things and give them away as gifts or sell them for charity, perhaps....

As far as my husband is concerned....well, I've tried to talk to him, but he is glued to his new book. The odd "aah haah!" and "right.....I see...." coming from him occasionally means, I think, that he's appreciative of his new reading material.

Derek Jones has the finished article, shows it to you in diagram format, dissected so-to-speak, and picture-by-picture you are shown how to build the item in question. The 176 page book has been put together as follows:

Part One -

Basics
Tools
Materials and Jigs

Part Two - Projects

Serving Platter
Marble Game
Ring Box

Wedge End Box

well illustrated and descriptions, but the actual products you make are not usefull and i do not know anyone who would... maybe the spaghetti measure, but thats soooo basic. Very disapointed and given it away without making anything in it. There are much better books out there.

Birthday present for my son who is a college lecturer. Simple but ideal ideas for some of his students, boosting the most inexperienced's morale.

A nice book with good detail, some projects require machines which ally of people might not have access too.

Hubby loves it and it's good to use those small pieces of wood up, therefore keeps his shed tidy ;-)
