Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Even the most experienced woodworker needs a little help. This detailed guide covers a wide array of woodworking topics. Compiled by experts in the field, who have previously authored other titles in Taunton's "Complete Illustrated Guide" series, the book doesn't offer much preparatory information but does include wonderful information on techniques. The arrangement is consistent and well thought out, with illustrated referencing at the beginning of each chapter. If you need more topnotch books on woodworking for your collection, this is a good purchase. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
