          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:

          • Make homemade products for cleaning and skin care
          • Grow your own food and cook more from scratch
          • Raise your family without lowering your standards
          A must-read for anyone who has ever wanted to live a greener life but thought that it would be too expensive, time-consuming or difficult, this handy, complete guide will show you how small changes can have a huge environmental impact and save you thousands of dollars, all while improving your quality of life.
