    Building Small Projects

    The only problem I had with this book is the projects don't have a materials list with them. If you are 100% new to woodworking like I am you may not like this book. For someone with a little background in woodworking it would mostlikey be a good book from them.

    Only for the Experienced Woodworker

    I haven't built anything from the book yet. However, after carefully reviewing the projects, I can safely say it is for the very experienced woodworker. I guess the title should have clued me in ("fine woodworking").
