I purchased this as I was just starting to set up my wood shop. It is a great read and covers all of the basics of woodworking including machines and basic processes and has several projects that are easy and some that are more difficult to build. I have done several of them and they are well laid out and understandable. I consider it a must read for new and old woodworkers.

480 pages later, I now know everything there is to know about woodworking. Well, not quite but this book gives a very detailed insight into the right way to do woodworking. From setting up a shop to actually making an object and everything in between, this book guides you through all the steps to getting it right beginning with the all important SAFETY issues in the shop and moving on to types of woods. It continues with squaring up and cutting the wood (stock) and then goes into types of joints. It explains how and when a router can be used and how to create a few jigs. Ever wonder how the handmade furniture gets that really GREAT glossy finish? There is a chapter on that. Need a cutting board for a gift, a book case, a birdhouse or a utility cabinet for your shop? These are only a four of the 40 projects provided. Simple to complex, choose which project you want to start with (after thoroughly reading the book, of course!) and have fun with wood.

I have made the picnic table, the adirondack chair and the sheet cart and all have turned out great. The plans and instructions are detailed and easy to follow. It is the best woodworking book I own.

This book is very imformative for first time woodworkers. It gives information on tools to use and how, wood to use, etc. It does take a while to read through as there is lots of information to absorb.
