First Paragraph of Introduction
101 Do-it-yourself Projects is designed for the person who enjoys making things. It is a book that will work hard for you. It is not meant to be read cover to cover while curled up in front, of a roaring fire, as you might do with a good novel. Instead, start by browsing through the color gallery of the 101 projects, which begins on page 8. When you come across a particular project that appeals to you, turn to the plans to get some sense of how much skill and time are required. You can get a rough idea from the tools pictured on the opening page of each project. If there are a few simple hand tools, you can safely assume that the project is not complicated. If the column of tools is packed with expensive specialized tools, you can be sure that the project is for an experienced craftsman.
From the 4th printing by Reader’s Digest in September 1990. The ISBN is 0-89577-163-2. This hardcover book measures about 11-1/4″ x 8-5/8″ and has 384 pages with Index at the back.
See the photo above. Lighter storage on the covers and pages in good condition with water stain and ripple in outside corners from the back. This does not affect your use of the book. Light forward lean to the spine, more to the top than the bottom. No names or markings found. From clean, smoke-free home.
Generally sent the same day payment arrives. Unless you request otherwise, I will wrap the book in plastic wrap to help protect it from the elements, tightly sandwich it between pieces of cardboard, then wrap in brown paper to send via Media Mail with Delivery Confirmation tracking. See the shipping page for the cost to send a four-pound Media Mail package. Insurance is an additional cost as described. I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs if you purchase more than one item. The second item may travel for free or just a few cents more — so it’s worth taking a look at my other items before you complete your order.
If you’d like more information or photos of any of the projects in 101 Do-it-yourself Projects, please feel free to contact me.
