Woodworking is fun but learning techniques can be tough for beginners. If you’re like me, you want to start building nice wood projects for family and friends. And, if you own consumer level tools, you may believe that furniture and cabinets aren’t possible for you, at least not quickly.
Chances are, that’s not true and the goal of Woodworking Simplified is to prove you can build attractive and functional wood projects for your home or office using consumer level tools.
Book 1 is just the first of a series of Woodworking Simplified books that include complete instructions, materials lists, drawings, and even exploded views for six projects including desks, cabinets, bookcases, tables, etc.
I used many of the simple methods in the Woodworking Simplified series to build furniture and cabinets for paying customers for more than 25 years and then for projects in my home. These same methods helped me deliver quality while still making a profit. Now you can use them to jump right in building wood projects for family and friends.
