Inside Super Simple Woodworking and Furniture Making, you'll learn an easy "glue, screw, cap" joinery method from professional woodworker Eugenie Glasson, to assemble beautifully simple furniture! Using commonly found wood and commonly owned tools—just a saw and a drill—follow easy instructions, cutting templates, and power carving directions for decorative features for 30 furniture projects, including a coffee table, bench, and much more. Designer and owner of Eugenie Woodcraft in Montreal, Canada, author and professional woodworker Eugenie Glasson has been building furniture for 15 years. Realizing she didn't like waiting around for the clamp-and-glue method, she devised her own called the glue-screw-and-cap method that allowed her to build furniture in a strong, fast, and efficient manner. Embellishing furniture with simple motifs carved with a handheld rotary tool, Glasson shares her methods within these pages to provide an accessible approach to building furniture—making this project book the perfect go-to introduction for any beginning woodworker!

In the story of New Zealand art, there's no one quite like Louise Henderson. A painter trained in embroidery and design. A French woman who found freedom to be herself in New Zealand. A modernist who looked to European tradition for inspiration. And a pioneer of abstraction who remained engaged with the world around her. The first substantial book on Henderson - and the only publication to illustrate artwork and archival material from across her seven-decade career - Louise Henderson: From Life connects this extraordinary artist with an international discussion about women modernists and confirms her importance in New Zealand's visual culture.

In this fascinating and informative book, Margaret Maclagan and Anne Buckley - two specialists in children's language development - explain the subtle and extraordinary process in which children learn to talk and the very important role that parents and grandparents can play. Combining a comprehensive understanding of speech development with fascinating scientific facts - did you know that babies cry with an accent? - Talking Baby offers numerous practical suggestions and real-life examples of how parents can best help their children to learn to talk. The authors also provide many ideas for 'talking' topics, as well as ways to use the everyday things in life to encourage children's comprehension and speech. Drawing on their combined 40 years’ experience, the authors also address some of the more commonly asked questions by parents such as: * Why is it that my child can imitate a word accurately but continues to use the wrong pronunciation in his speech? * Do second and other children talk later than first children? * My 18-month-old child isn't saying anything. Should I be worried? * Is it better to use grown-up language to talk to young children than ˜baby talk"? * How early can I start reading to my child? * English isn't my first language. How can I help my children to speak it well? * My child is repeating words a lot, especially when excited- does this mean she's stuttering?
