The introductory section shows you what tools you might use for these kinds of projects. However, one thing I was hoping for was some more information on solid woods and possibly veneers. I have questions about what to use for large surface areas if you are building with solid wood, and what to look for in solid woods for cabinet building. That kind of information is briefly mentioned but not covered in detail. The front face of doors, for instance, might be bordered by hardwood but the interior panel is thinner and usually a plywood or veneer. I was hoping this book might tell me how to make that, but it didn't (at least not in much detail). I was also hoping for more information on the wood types for cabinet bodies. It mentions particleboard and plywood but doesn't offer a lot of information on how to make these materials look nice. I was hoping for info on these details.
The other sections on bedroom and closet storage are very useful. I've built strong and functional (but not pretty) shelves before; this book should help me make them prettier next time with less bulky construction. There are neat designs for under-the-bed storage and closet shelving that I intend to use one of these days.
