    Some nice puzzles, useful techniques

    Well illustrated with detailed instructions and solutions to all puzzles. Techniques are all power tool based; would have been nice to see hand tool alternatives. Otherwise, everything is here. Choice of puzzles is good, but centered on puzzles with rectangular prism pieces.
