Library Journal Review

Engler has written a number of excellent books containing original designs, clear illustrations, and excellent instructions. Here he collaborates with Morgan to show readers how to construct 40 attractive outdoor projects. There is something for woodworkers of all skill levels, from relatively simple projects like birdhouses or raised garden beds through those requiring a great deal of experience, such as garages, gazebos, and other small structures. Each section includes design tips, information about materials and finishing, and thorough instructions. This title would be excellent for woodworkers who are making the move from simple to complex projects because the instructions and illustrations contain more detail than usual. Engler has a following among woodworkers, so there is sure to be interest in this title. Recommended for most collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
