The essentials needed in this book stood out a bit and the purpose is good. I agree with the other guy.
When I first purchased this book, I knew in advance that it was a collection of Popular Woodworking articles, and was ready to be a bit disappointed in the book's layout. It was the information I was after, so it was a small thing to me.
However, when it arrived and I began looking at it, it was difficult to tell that this was just a collection of articles arranged into a book form. The articles seem to flow from one to the next as if it were written from the first page all the way to the index.
The layout is extremely logical, starting with how to accumulate vintage tools and rehabbing them, to finally putting together several projects with these tools. A great deal of effort and work went into this book, and it shows. Popular Woodworking didn't take the easy way out, they took the road less traveled and it has made all the difference!
