Great Job.

The book does a great job explaining the tools needed in the beginning. The characteristics and best uses for each type of wood is explained in adequate detail.

Woodworking is so fun but anyway difficult.

Woodworking is so fun but anyway difficult. Everyone who wants to be a great woodworker should prepare set of hand tools. The basic power tools needed are a table saw, a bandsaw, a drill, and a sander, such as a palm sander. If you can't afford these, you can substitute the table saw for a skilsaw and a straight edge jig, and the bandsaw can have a good jig saw in its place.

Love this book.

The book is filled with tips for making your own furniture without being a professional woodworker. Lots of projects and easy to follow instructions. Also the projects do not require a lot of professional woodworking tools.

This is great.

I have not yet tried the projects, but this has several good ones and the steps are fabulous. This is exactly the level I am at--I know enough to get in over my head. This book helps me keep my feet on the ground and my projects actually something I can complete.

Great book for beginners.

This book was a wonderful resource for the beginner & laymen. It definitely got my cogs turning and great for ideas and general resource about wood type, joiner, cuts, tools/ jigs & saws, plans for some projects, drawing/ planning, and everything under the sun. I hate putting together the overpriced furniture from a store that falls apart, dings, or damages and really is a cheaply made hunk of garbage.

This is very nice.

I am an artisan and make jewelry. I wanted to explore more with wood and this audio book was perfect for me. It was very thorough without being too much. I now feel as though I could "talk shop" with others about wood and woodworking. I feel prepared to start and I'm super excited!
