These plans are a great way to introduce the younger generation to woodworking. The step-by-step visual instructions are easy to follow, even if you have no woodworking experience. Each plan lists the tools and materials required and includes measured cutting diagrams. Helpful definitions of woodworking terms are provided throughout, along with suggestions for customizing the projects. Printed in full color on water- and rip-proof synthetic paper, the 11" × 17" plans are spiral bound in a booklet, with a loop for hanging them in sight of your workbench.
The 10 plans included are a toolbox, workbench, birdhouse, picture frame, periscope, bird feeder, elastic-powered boat, shadow box, magazine rack and smartphone stand. The plans progress from simple to more challenging, teaching and developing woodworking skills along the way.
Recommended for ages 10 and up with adult supervision, all of the projects are designed to build confidence in using basic tools as well as encourage the learning of a life-long skill.
