Editorial Reviews

Louisville Courier Journal
“You’ll want one for yourself and several to give to your handy friends (or those who just want to learn). Even know-it-all woodworkers are bound to pick up a technique or two, and newcomers will be itching to power up the power tools and get to work.”
Akron Beacon Journal
"A mentor-on-paper, offering tips and guidance that can benefit woodworkers of all skill levels."

    Very basic, a website faq in print.

    I expected some basic tips, but not this basic. The info in this book can be found on any decent web page about carpentry and woodworking. It is as if someone literally printed out the FAQ from one of these sites. I would not have purchased this if I had known the information was so scant. Unless you are an absolute novice, look elsewhere. If you are a novice just go online for the same info for free.
