Description

You don’t need a ton of talent, tools, or space to make amazing projects with wood -- just a willingness to dive in and try. In Build Stuff with Wood, the former editor of Fine Woodworking magazine throws out the old rules, creating useful, stylish items using only a few portable power tools, off the-shelf lumber, and some unusual supplies. Whether you are entering the handmade world for the first time or just looking for easy, weekend projects, this book is for you.

You’ll get 14 projects to build, including:

  • Outdoor bench
  • Cedar planters with bench
  • Curvy cutting board
  • Postmodern coffee table
  • Floating shelves
  • Hanging lamp
  • Rolling workstation
  • and more!


Plus, Asa’s chapter on what to build and where to build it makes this the perfect book for anyone just starting out. He covers off on basic tools you’ll need, understanding lumber, and safety essentials.
