Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. Verified Purchase. This a poorly outlined, verbose and self-indulgent manuscript with some terrific information that is without an ounce of soul. While there is great information to be had, I found it scattershot throughout the book in ways that make the content difficult to pick through for my purposes. Also, be forewarned, you should have the ability to do mid-level calculus prior to buying. Is the book good: absolutely not Is it informative: for sure, but be willing to invest the time Is this book for the average craftsman: not a chance!

Pictures are too small to be useful get the print version till Amazon learns to enlarge pictures like they do with text. Rating is based on Amazon failure not book content or writing. This is a 'must have' for any woodworker! There are some details in this book that go a bit over my head as far as some of the math formulas, but even that was informative. There may be some topics in this book I won't ever use, but whole knows, at least it's there.

As a whole, this is one of the best out there to help you understand wood and it's properties and characteristics. It had helped a great deal in understanding wood movement, something that the author says is constant and unavoidable.

He let's you know how to minimize or work with the effects of movement. Some of the chapters include gluing, identification, bending, drying, jointing, and finishing. It covers enough for the beginner and advanced. This would make a good gift for anyone into woodworking. Not bad but I expected more of a discussion of wood and especially the different trees and differences in working with different woods.

First few chapters are good but then he gets too technically detailed. This is a fantastic book, not just about the physiology of wood, but an excellent engineering summary of buying, drying, cutting, joining, and finishing. While the depth is profound, the book is extremely pleasant to read, avoiding rabbit holes of obscurity and focusing on a very systematic explanation of the fundamentals.

This book was recommended to me by my woodturning instructor, and I will be gifting this book to my friends who start down the woodworking path. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. DPReview Digital Photography.
