Hometime Weekend Home Projects

As he does on public TV, Dean Johnson serves as the host of Hometime Weekend Home Projects (IVI Publishing). This one is for the ambitious do-it-yourselfer as opposed to the home repair type. Select from 12 categories such as plumbing, wallpaper, wiring & lighting, and so on. The videos show Johnson and his sidekick actually doing a project, and there are buttons for accessing sections on tools, materials, and the like. The interface is lively and attractive, but this is not an easy program to navigate. There is no index. The only way to get out of a topic and into another is by returning to the main menu, selecting a category, and scrolling up and down again. The information here is well presented, but the amateur may find a video and a book a handier set of tools.

– April 1995
