As pocket references go, this new one has a lot of advantages others miss. The book's spiral binding makes it ideal for tossing in a toolbox or dropping in an apron pocket. The fact that it opens flat to lay on a work surface for easy reference, is a big plus. It is a book to take along to the lumberyard or hardware store, or keep in the shop for quick answers to confounding formulas and cutting crown molding angles; well worth having.
Everything a woodworker needs to know at a glance. Loads of information about everything from joints to woods to tools in an easy-to-read, quick-to-find format.
