Outdoor Wood Projects: 24 Projects You Can Build in a Weekendby Steve Cory
Synopses & Reviews
Outdoor living is one of the stronger categories in the house and home market; we also know that outdoor projects that are quick and inexpensive to build are particularly popular with cash-strapped homeowners. Outdoor Wood Projects will feature 24 projects for the backyard and garden that can be completed with basic DIY tooling, inexpensive materials, and beginner skills--and that should take no more than a weekend to build. Projects are grouped into the following categories: planters, window boxes, trellises, and outdoor furniture; and there is also a whole chapter devoted to projects built with bamboo. A number of the projects are constructed from reclaimed or recycled wood (such as an Adirondack chair made from wood pallets).
Start--and finish--a nifty outdoor woodworking project in just one weekend. Just two days is all it takes to complete each one of the 24 garden and backyard projects featured in Outdoor Wood Projects. Included are things like: planters and window boxes, trellises, outdoor furniture, bamboo garden projects, reclaimed/recycled wood projects such as an Adirondack chair made from wood pallets, and so much more. Designed for beginners, these 24 wonderful projects are inexpensive to make and require only basic tools. All you need is a weekend!
