- Keep this handy and it will pave the way toward fine woodwork. Review by Vincent
This issue had doors, drawers, cabinets and more; telling you the options and best methods and pitfalls to watch for. These pros talk woods, construction approaches and give advice that the old man down the block would tell you--if he were still alive?! This time saving issue is a compilation, so you get advice and step by step instruction. My background in graphic arts helps along with some nice German and Austrian machines; but, where do I get another 10 years experience--with this issue in hand--I have read it 4 times. You don't have to agree with every bit Will Neptune says, but, he does give you the facts that apply to a range of construction approaches. Yes, I like this book and refer to it once a week. They do not tell you how to SU your shaper or band saw panels from 12/4 Afr Mahog or finish it with a blend of coating, but, you would pay 800 thin ones to go to this class and travel the US in doing so. The article about table design is good stuff. Thanks. V Rolfe Chicago
