    I’ve only had the book for one day and briefly scanned the contents. After doing a DIY remodel which included installing hardwood floors, building a fireplace mantel, installing windows and doors successfully I realized I could do some incredible things If I could get a solid foundation in wood and wood working. This book does just that, gives me the foundation to become autonomous. This is a great addition to my growing Creative Home Owner books collection. I highly recommend.

    Great book! It covers everything from Setting up shop, wood types and different cuts of wood. Squaring, marking and cutting. It covers all of the different joints and how to make each. Finishing is also covered. It has a ton of good color photos and illustrations in it. Tools benches and safety gear are all covered. Undoubtedly the best single all round book on woodworking I have seen to date. Based on the reviews I figured this would be nice to have, but I very pleased with the overall quality not only of the book itself, but the contents also. I would give it 5 ½ stars if I could. I inherited my father’s woodworking equipment and so I have been studying about equipment and projects. I have purchased approximately 10 + books in the last few months. This one is the one I am most pleased with.
