MEDIA REVIEWS
"The first step in any DIY effort is to make sure the right tools are on hand, but how to figure that out? The expert and enthusiastic editors at Popular Mechanics have created a 'definitive guide' to the baffling world of tools. Well designed and sturdy (the book opens flat and stays open), this precisely informative, confidence-boosting resource presents 100 tools that will support "a lifetime of everyday projects." Each tool is displayed with a full-page color photograph facing a lively and lucid one-page description, followed, in many cases, by a tip or how-to advice. The tools, from such basics as a claw hammer, awl, combination wrench, and pruner to a benchtop table saw and air compressor, are organized alphabetically in four sections--construction, woodworking, landscaping, and mechanical (soldering torch, tap and die, plumbing and electrical implements). Each category is introduced with a table of contents, and there is also an index. Thorough instructions for several DIY projects (building a farmhouse table and a bluestone patio, wiring a light switch) complete this exceptionally instructive and upbeat resource." -- Booklist
YA: Visually welcoming and accessible, this is an excellent guide for budding DIYers.
