Black & Decker The Complete Guide to Outdoor Carpentry, Updated 2nd Edition: Complete Plans for Beautiful Backyard Building Projects (Black & Decker Complete Guide) Reviews
I bought this book looking for easy-ish outdoor projects and it has some good ones. Unfortunately, the first project I decided to build (potting bench) had errors in the materials list requiring a second trip to the lumber store. I was short a couple boards and the list called for 1-1/4" and 2" deck screws, but the instructions call for 2" and 2-1/2" deck screws. The measurements were good but the plan drawings and instructions were not as detailed as they might be.
It's a soso how to book, not the worst. Many of the instructions are in such a way that there is a lot of assumptions that the audience are professionals.
Like these projects!
Awesome book, I can’t wait a better weather to start crafting some nice benches for my porch!!!
Love this book. Can't wait to try
The book arrived in a timely manner and in the condition described. Contents were as expected. I give 4 stars only because I have the first edition and there are some duplications from the first edition in the second edition.
Delivered on time and priced good
