Are you into gardening, DIY, or organic living? Looking to branch into woodworking? Build It Yourself: Weekend Projects for the Garden will help you to do just that. Accompanying you every step of the way, from the local home goods store to your workshop or table, Build It Yourself is a fun, accessible, and portable guide to constructing twelve practical, tasteful projects for your garden and home.
Author and master woodworker Frank Perrone instructs with the novice in mind. Each project is designed for simple building, complete with a materials list, a cut sheet that makes getting lumber a snap, dimensional diagrams, illustrated step-by-step instructions with attention to every detail, and "Helpful Hints," plus space for notes.
Frank Perrone is a master woodworker with over thirty years of experience. He is currently the director of Facilities and Capital Projects at Wave Hill, a public garden and cultural center, located in the Riverdale section of Bronx, New York. He has worked at Wave Hill for the past three years and in that time has been running weekend workshops teaching novice builders how to make chairs, tables, harvest baskets and bird houses. His main inspiration has been the Gerrit Reitveld design of the Red and Blue Chair, which he has expanded into a set of furniture using the same construction techniques.
