I dug this book (see what I did there?). The projects were well explained.

Excelling on beautiful woodworking eye appeal, I felt that where they were a bit impractical in how a few of the designs were undersized for the best functionality. This book is definitely designed for a woodworker. Design 7 is the fanciest compost bin I think I will ever see. Plans are included for all 47 projects.
