With 2011 already 10 days old, I’m happily anticipating some noteworthy Popular Woodworking Books that will be going on sale this year. I thought I’d take a minute and share some of those titles with you.
First up is “Backyard Projects” (available in early March, but available for pre-sale now). Seasoned project author and professional woodworker Chris Gleason has turned his woodworking sights to the great outdoors, offering 20 backyard projects to make your backyard a fun and functional oasis. The projects include traditional outdoor seating, deck accessories, functional planters and grilling stations, but Gleason also reaches out to today’s homesteader with a chicken coop and rabbit hutch. And if you’ve been looking for a tree house, he’s got one of those, too. With lots of step-by-step photos and instructions, Spring can’t come fast enough to start on these great projects for your yard.
A little further along the calendar (available in late April, but available for pre-sale now) is a new book by well-known woodworking author, Jim Tolpin.
