One of our members , Katie, is writing a book on simple outdoor furniture making, and her editor wants her to have others read her written instructions, build my projects, and give mher feedback on whether they have any questions. The book is written for any skill level, so whether you’ve built something before or not, you can (hopefully) read her instructions (and if you can’t, she wants to hear about it before the book is published). She’ll be ...

Making soap is mostly avoiding inhaling lye fumes an...
