Product Details


“Ever wrestled with nails, screws, and hex wrenches on ‘ready to assemble’ shelves, chairs, or tables, all the while thinking that you could just as easily make the design cheaper and better from scratch? If so, White cheers you on…You can use this book to build 34 simple designs, such as tables (including a Lego coffee table), chairs, beds, and benches. Author and blogger White (, who first built furniture during her newborn’s naptime, still remembers her fear of firing a nail gun. Those of us who still feel that fear should be glad she’s there as a guide.” Publisher’s Weekly

“[] led to White’s first book, The Handbuilt Home, which features simple furniture plans to help readers take a crack at construction. The key to getting started? Don’t be intimidated. ‘We’re more capable than we think,’ White says.”O, The Oprah Magazine
