Build Stuff with Wood

Build Stuff with Wood
by Asa Christiana
You don’t need a ton of talent, tools, or space to make amazing projects with wood -- just a willingness to dive in and try. In Build Stuff with Wood, the former editor of Fine Woodworking magazine throws out the old rules, creating useful, stylish items using only a few portable power tools, off the-shelf lumber, and some unusual supplies. Whether you are entering the handmade world for the first time or just looking for easy, weekend projects, this book is for you.

You’ll get 14 projects to build, including:
  • Outdoor bench
  • Cedar planters with bench
  • Curvy cutting board
  • Postmodern coffee table
  • Floating shelves
  • Hanging lamp
  • Rolling workstation
  • and more!

Plus, Asa’s chapter on what to build and where to build it makes this the perfect book for anyone just starting out. He covers off on basic tools you’ll need, understanding lumber, and safety essentials.

“With Asa’s clear and affable writing, a simple set of tools, and the affordable materials available at any home improvement store, the world is indeed your oyster. Have fun!”
-- Nick Offerman, star of TV’s “Parks and Rec,” from the foreword
If you or someone you know if ready to start enjoying the satisfaction of building things with wood, there’s no better place to start than this book. Download your copy today!

About the author Asa Christiana is a lifelong builder of things, from childhood bikes and forts to a house in rural Connecticut. He combined a trade-school background and journalism training to land a job at Fine Woodworking, serving as the magazine’s chief editor for eight years. An accomplished furniture maker, he now lives in Portland, Oregon, where he writes, builds, hikes, bikes, and drinks good beer (not necessarily in that order).

"Exceptionally well written, illustrated, organized, and presented, Build Stuff with Wood is very highly recommended for high school woodshop curriculums, community library woodworking collections, and the personal reference shelf of do-it-yourself woodworking enthusiasts." –Midwest Book Review
