The Handbuilt Home Giveaway

Those of you that have been reading this blog for awhile know that I like to make my husband we like to build furniture.

Nate likes to try to come up with his own plans but sometimes it’s easier to not have to reinvent the wheel.  That was the case with our farmhouse table.

Ana White’s plan for the Big Ur Farm Table was very straightforward.  We loved the look of the table and there wasn’t much to improve on.

Ana White's site has also been super helpful with any building related questions that Nate has when I show him a piece of furniture and say “Please build this dear love of mine.”  She introduced us to the Kreg jig and our lives have never been the same since.  Seriously.  True story.

I was recently asked to review Ana’s book, The Handbuilt Home.

The book is full of furniture plans for every room of the home.  The book is very visually appealing with many photos of diagrams and completed projects.  I enjoyed the first few chapters of the book that explain what tools are needed, what kind of wood to purchase for the various projects, and what type of finishes to use on the projects.  The book also includes information on different types of cutting and assembly.

After reading this book I almost thought I could build furniture on my own.  Who needs that husband?  Not me.  Okay, wait. I do.  I can’t cut straight to save my life. I am, however, seriously thinking about learning how to use a saw. Seriously.  Baby steps.  I won’t be wearing heels though if I do.  That Ana is an impressive lady.
