What more can a person ask for in furniture designs than to blend the practicality of IKEA with the master design qualities of Martha Stewart. Spike Carlsen has accomplished that in this book of Ridiculously Simple Furniture Projects. It definitely is great looking furniture that anyone can build. If you are looking for attractive, affordable and functional furniture, look no further. The 38 do it yourself projects will have your wish list filled in no time. The projects in this book can often be built in two to four hours of course, some are more complex.
Experience a sense of pride by making your own functional furniture that looks great and has saved you a lot of money. The majority of the projects also incorporate clever construction, such as the use of bifold doors, stock cabinets, and off-the-shelf lumber, guaranteeing that the required materials are both inexpensive and easily accessible.
