The projects in this book have amazing style!!!!A bunch of them are super chunky and also incorporate concrete which is such a great material to work with. The directions on how to build the forms to cast the concrete are excellent and will surely make for a successful outcome. There are classic patterns as well for things like adirondack chairs and storage benches but what really sets this book apart are the stylish tables, stools (that use industrial pipe as well) and bars that use corrugated metal. There is also a recycled pallet table. There are lots of great tips, tricks and advice including how to use a pocket hole jig.
I appreciated the step by step instructions that made each project obtainable for someone with limited experience.
I just started to learn woodworking and thought that this book and its projects would be great to start with. Some of the plans are okay. I'd like them to be a bit more detailed. Cut lists are fine but I would love better measurement diagrams. I decided to start with the club chair as it seemed simple and I wanted some chairs for the backyard.I found an issue with the cut list and material list. Both lists are completely off and I'll edit this review later to put the details in as to what is wrong. Suffice to say that the materials list causes you to buy too much supplies for the project and the cut list dimensions are incorrect for some of the parts. The bottom and back chair slats to be exact. Also, if you're going to put a list of the type of screws to use please provide a complete list and use regular wood screws for non pocket joining. Kreg pocket screws are expensive. You don't have to use the pocket screws for nearly everything. That's just lazy.
I suppose this is why it's good to by the physical book. Instructions were understandable, though I only found 3 designs I liked and may try. Although, this is based on preference not the Arthur himself.
Great book. Well presented. Gift for my "newly retired" husband.
