Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mehler, a professional woodworker, contributes this well-paced, focused book on what is usually the central tool in most woodworking shops. Mehler comprehensively lays out the various choices available and details the advantages of the suggestions he makes, particularly in terms of the reader's level of woodworking skill. Much here will benefit the novice, and a fair amount of the material will serve as a reminder or means of improvement for the advanced woodworker. Illustrations are well placed and relevant to the text, while the drawings are clear. Many suggestions have a direct bearing on convenience and safety. This simple, direct, and thorough book is recommended for collections with extensive woodworking sections. A companion video is available from the publisher.-- Alex Hartmann, Bloomsburg Univ. Lib., Pa.
