In "Easy Shaker & Arts & Crafts Projects," you'll find five handsome projects arranged in an order that will help build your shop skills and woodworking confidence. (And if you're already an experienced woodworker, these are still fun and classic projects you'll enjoy making!)
This collection is composed of articles from Woodworking Magazine, a publication we printed from 2004 to 2009. (In 2009, Woodworking Magazine was combined with Popular Woodworking to form Popular Woodworking Magazine, a publication that combines the best ideas and approaches of the two previous magazines.) The projects presented here include some of our most popular, including:
