Simple, practical designs are the centerpiece of this collection of furniture and accessory projects that woodworkers of any skill level can use to build for the porch and patio. The 21 projects focus on benches and seats but include such diverse items as a barbecue work station, a bike rack, window boxes, bird feeders, and plant stands. Readers can make these handsome projects out of affordable and readily available 1-by and 2-by lumber, using such basic woodworking tools as saws, hammers, drills, and clamps. A technical section covers gluing and clamping for precise results on these and future jobs, and each project includes a detailed list of materials, precise step-by-step instructions with photographs, and an assembly drawing showing how each item fits together. Finishing options like varnish and paint are also included, but builders can choose to leave the wood unfinished to take on a natural, weathered patina over time.
