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.
