Very insightful

Very insightful, however some images or illustrations of what is being described would be a great addition. I mention this as somebody that is not very practical and usually need pictures or illustrations to make things clear for me. Never the less I did enjoy all the ideas given.

Very informative & helpful audiobook..

Woodworking has been around since the dawn of time, in one form or another. There is evidence from ancient Rome, Egypt, China, and Japan. Modern woodworking has several different fields to specialize in, and most of them require a different shop set up and necessary tools. An artist specializing in this field will have extensive knowledge about how people used to build or make wooden items.
