- A very well thought out product. Review by Jon
I have several of the FWW DVD's now, but this one has to be my favorite. Paolini takes you right through the process in such a way that he give you a real confidence and desire to 'get out there' and get building. Each part of the project is a logical extension of the previous one and builds nicely. I was also impressed with the pacing of the video; nothing feels rush or skipped over and you really do get some extra tips and tricks in here that build to your overall knowledge. The supplied plan and Sketchup model are superb so the DVD is really a complete 'How to' kit: (Just add timber). I really recommend this DVD even if you've watched the it online; the picture and sound quality are just so much better that you get more out of the DVD. Just one request though for future DVD's: can we please have the music at the start and end as it's absence make the production feel a bit incomplete.
