Well, now it is easier with this new set of 10 ebook guides entitled, “How To Build Anything With Three Tools“.   Each book is well illustrated and to the point (they sell separately for $4.95 each) and cover the three tools, and how to use those to build guides for sawing that allow you to cut with precision.  There is a separate book on which types of woods are best for each type project, etc.  What welcome information they are when the set of plans is merely sketches on one sheet of paper without any explanation on how to cut or how to best proceed with the steps necessary to finish the project.
