Description

Featuring 23 complete home furnishing plans presented with simple, graphic photos and illustrations, BLACK+DECKER Carpentry Made Simple is an interactive introduction to home carpentry: with great designs.

Each carefully selected project contains lessons and valuable tips on skill building and design to help you improve as a DIYer, as you simultaneously create lovely, modern, and even elegant chairs, benches, shelves, cabinets and lots more just pennies on the dollar versus shopping in trendy boutiques.

Carpentry Made Simple is a nonstop carpentry ride that will impress you with the quality and diversity of the information it shares. The 20+ projects have complete plans, detail photos, and clear assembly instructions. Each project also highlights a skill, tool, or technique that will add a new dimension to your skill set.

And not only will completing these projects sharpen your skills, but you will love the projects themselves. The design styles range from modern, to Euro, to industrial, with all of the major furnishing categories represented. When friends and visitors see the subtly beautiful contemporary furniture that you built yourself, you will realize just how satisfying it is to be your own home carpenter.

During that time, Brad also spent twelve years as a freelance editor for American Woodworker magazine. He is currently an associate editor for The Family Handyman magazine.
