Whether you’d like to help a youngster get started with woodworking or learn the basics yourself, Kid Crafts: Woodworking, by John Kelsey, is a good investment. The book is divided into four chapters: “All About Wood,” “Woodworking Supplies,” “Tools” and “Projects.” Clear plans, numerous photos and step-by-step instructions make the book easy to understand. The projects can be built with simple hand tools and range from fun (toys and a birdhouse) to practical (a toolbox, bookshelf and picture frame). This is a great introduction to woodworking, even for adults.
