    I don't have it. Come to think of it, I don't think I could do 50 projects in one weekend.

      Since John Nelson is such a noted author, I would suggest checking a local library.
      You can probably check the book out free and copy the patterns you want.

        Let me show my ignorance. The posted price of this book is $9.95, yet it says 13 new for $7.99 and 27 used for $6.99. Why pay $9.99 if you can get it new for $7.99.

        Am I missing something?

          You have to be used to Amazon. The 9.95 price is for Prime members, with free two-day shipping. When you check the vendors that sell for 7.99, you see that they are charging, $3+ for shipping, which effectively raises the price to over ten dollars.

            Hammer, Tgiro is right. I'm an Amazon prime member so I get free two day shipping in some cases it only one day. I ordered a surge protector yesterday about 4:30pm it arrived today before 1:00pm. So the $9.95 is the lower price. Spirithourse I could see if my local library has the book and just makes copy's but I just don't feel right about doing that.

              I have that book. I've not cut anything from it. I find Nelson's patterns to intricate for my taste. I don't recall any projects I think would be suitable for kids.

                  I have the book and like it. I enjoy the variety and most of the projects can be made out of plywood to see if you enjoy the style.
                  You may even come up with some ideas yourself once you look through it.
                  Libraries are a great source to look before you buy . No shame in grabbing a particular pattern if you don't want the whole book.
