    I have been an avid woodworker for about 15 years. I enjoy many types of projects, but i gravitate towards box making and joinery. I became interested in woodworking by helping my kids with their Pinewood derby cars. From design to painting and sealing my kids were involved in every aspect of their cars. Now, teenagers we look back at those times with great fondness.

    Most kids seem to gravitate towards building things at some point in their lives. Woodworking for Young Makers aims to get them beyond the initial confusion of what to make and how to start, and get the kids to focus on what needs to be done. The book is highly illustrated with pictures and images a child can relate to.

    While the book has four main projects, the goal of the book isn't about the objects being made, but the basic knowledge of tools and tool safety that is involved. Each project adds a few new elements to show the kids new tricks. It will hopefully demystify the garage and "Dad's tools" for your kids.

    This is a great book. I could not recommend more highly. It is a book for both parent and child. Parents should guide, encourage, and always congratulate their little workers as they march their way through this book.

    I got this book as much for me as for my 12-year-old son. My thought was that we could learn and make something together. After all, I never had anyone teach me how to use tools so this book seemed perfect for a newbie like me and my son. I like that there are some kid-friendly projects (Wizard's Wand) and practical (charging stand, secret compartment box) projects in the book.

    The book walks you through each project -- including materials needed and each step -- and includes simple diagrams and illustrations to help you complete each project. Everything seems fairly straightforward but, at the same time, doesn't seem like it is "dumbed down" for kids. You're using real tools and wood to make real projects.

    If, like me, you want a way to introduce yourself and your kids to using tools and exploring the possibilities for woodworking, this seems like a great book for accomplishing this goal.

    Caveat: We haven't yet tried to make any of the projects yet (we plan on doing this over the summer months), but I'll try to remember to come back give a report on the results once we do.
