I Can Do That
In every issue of Popular Woodworking, the "I Can Do That" column features projects that can be completed by any woodworker with a modest (but decent) kit of tools in less than two days of shop time, and using raw materials that are available at any home center.
Our free online manual (in PDF format) explains all the tools and shows you how to perform the basic operations in a step-by-step format. You'll learn to rip with a jigsaw, crosscut with a miter saw and drill straight with the help of our manual. Whenever we introduce a new tool or technique to the column, we'll update the manual, too. (You might want to bookmark this page so you can easily find it when we update the manual.)
