Woodworking for everyone

Woodworking for everyone

By Peter Alkema

This book will inspire you to create practical and stylish furniture for your home. Perfect for the coffee table or the workshop, this comprehensive and creative book contains 13 projects that will turn your weekends into fun-filled family time. Learn the basics of woodworking and make something useful that you will be proud of.

Each chapter is packed with photographs and illustrations as well as the background to the project and a list of materials and tools needed to complete the job. The instructions are clear and easy to follow with tips along the way to help you save time and get the job done. A ‘tools and techniques’ section provides you with practical insight about working with wood and the tools to get started.

Make the toy box or booster step as your first project in just a couple of hours. Finish the nursery shelf before the baby arrives or tackle the bed project if your child’s cot is becoming too small. Transform your garden with the sturdy bench in a shady spot or create a whole new outdoor play area with the Wendy house. You can even build your own workbench if you need a space for working and storing tools.

Also available in Afrikaans Houtwerk vir Almal
