Part of the Wood magazine series of books, this title offers a good number of projects for the experienced woodworker. Concise instructions are given for each project, using exploded-view drawings of the construction. There is no handholding or list of needed tools; the book assumes that the reader is well equipped and already understands basic techniques. Projects include some lovely outdoor seating and a variety of arbors and pergolas, as well as other garden accessories. If your collection is in dire need of project patterns for more experienced woodworkers, this is a great addition. [Page 166]. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
