Hey!The diagrams for the furniture are pretty straight-forward, and I think I could do them if I tried, however you can't really read how to do these things unless you have some rudimentary knowledge in diagrams of this sort. For instance, what in the world is a 4-penny finish nails cardboard for patterns? There is no explanation, no vocabulary help in this book. And the diagrams are all sketches, not pictures, so no color. It is difficult for me to understand this book, but it's still simple enough that I think I could decipher it if I sat down and tried to make these products.One last forewarning: It's a 32-page booklet. Not a large book on how to do a whole bunch of techniques or anything of that nature. Just a little booklet with some projects you can try to get yourself started on the road of making your own furniture.Hope that helps all you potential buyers, and happy reading!Luv ya,Tashi :)

If you want to build the furniture they show, all is well. I just didn't happen to care for what they had.
