I don't buy a lot of how-to books these days. It's not that I dislike reading, but rather I tend to go to web for most of my instructional needs. Sometimes, however, I come across a book that looks so amazing that I just need to get it. That's how I felt when I discovered DIY Furniture: A Step-by-Step Guide by Christopher Stuart. It's now at the top of my reading list; I plan on ordering a copy ASAP.
The book features 30 designs by top-notch designers that range from interior seating and storage to garden furniture. Best of all, the materials used in all of the projects can easily be found at a local hardware store. No obscure parts that you need to order here!
