Each book in the Back to Basics Series is designed and written to teach woodworkers core information they need to succeed in a clear and plainspoken manner. As the series' slogan puts it, "Your world is complicated enough, your woodworking information shouldn't be."
Cabinet Construction is the newest title in this popular series. Taking the confusion and complication out of learning to build furniture, the book introduces readers to basic carcase construction, teaches woodworkers to design boxes, and covers frame-and-panel construction. Next, the new woodworker gets all the basics on building doors, drawers and legs. Other basics perfect for the beginner include choosing the right lumber, joining boards, planing stock, ripping a work piece, and sanding.
Written with a straightforward approach, Cabinet Construction includes color photos as well as highly detailed illustrations and diagrams that help readers visualize each technique. It's perfect for both the beginner who doesn't want to get bogged down with too much information and the experienced craftsman who needs a handy reference tool to keep on hand.

Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without - our grandmothers knew the importance of responsible, thrifty choices. But somewhere along the way we succumbed to the belief that we can get everything for next to nothing, have it shipped halfway around the world and then, more often than not, just throw it away.
This consumer binge is taking its toll. Diet and lifestyle-related illnesses are epidemic, our environment is awash in a sea of plastic, our climate is changing, and the cost of everything is skyrocketing with the price of oil. Are we doomed? No. We can make greener, healthier choices, and we can do it while saving money.
Where to start? Ecothrifty is packed with simple, practical ideas and recipes to help you:

Soap is supposed to cleanse and soothe skin, but what's available in stores often just dries and irritates. With The Natural Soap Chef anyone can quickly learn how to make all-natural soaps that gently wash even the most sensitive skin. Not only are these soaps good for the body, they beautifully dress up any home with their delicious scents and colors. This book will show you the way your great-grandma made soap, by using the cold process method and the basic components of soap: lye and oil. With easy-to-follow instructions and photos that guarantee success, you'll be a soap-making expert in no time.
The first step into a new craft can be overwhelming: Where to start? What tools to buy? What projects to begin with? Thanks to author and internationally acclaimed woodcarver Chris Pye, this guide is filled with everything a beginning woodcarver needs to know.
Pye's Woodcarving Course & Reference Manual is akin to having a one-on-one course with a master carver. You'll learn what to look for in a workbench, the importance of commissioning your carving tools-there's more to it than just sharpening!-and how to make exacting cuts and execute a variety of techniques. Like any good instructor, Pye includes practice exercises to make you comfortable with the tools and techniques, so you can build your skills and carve with confidence.
Pye's conversational teaching style will encourage you as you follow the step-by-step instructions and work on a number of motifs, as well as projects for low, high and pierced relief, and in-the-round.
