This review was first posted in the April, 2011 issue of the LumberJocks’ eMag
With the books’ chapters including chairs, benches, tables, swings and gliders and garden projects, Outdoor Furniture pretty much has everything covered for outdoor furnishings. Besides the projects themselves the book focuses on how to build furniture that will hold up in the outdoors.
For me, with having just basic woodworking skills, I found this book to be “one up” from my abilities – taking the cut and join building that I am used to into the fine woodworking realm. With excellent photos, drawings, and directions provided, this is a wonderful book for, not only someone who wants to build some outdoor furniture, but also for those who want to try their hand at some finer woodworking skills.
My Ratings of The Book
Layout and Appearance: Good balance of photos, plans and instructions. Thumbs Up!
Instructions: Clear step-by-step instructions and patterns. Thumbs Up!
Projects Selection: Great variety – from easier and complex difficulty
Inspiration: a wonderful variety of projects. Thumbs Up!
Overall: Thumbs Up!
