    This book is designed for the suburban home owner with access to a ‘warehouse’ style hardware store. It covers the tools available at your hardware store and how to use them for your masonry projects. A variety of projects are outlined, with an emphasis on poured concrete and purchased blocks (cinder-blocks, bricks, etc). The book is filled with color photos and each project includes a step-by-step construction details. There are many, many useful construction tips.

    These are beginner projects, so the book isn’t designed to inspire the inner-artist.
