Customer Reviews
No way would I try the tennoning jig in this book, November 27, 2002
Reviewer: Bill Smith from Columbus, OH United States
This book is good in the descriptions about wood selection and wood types. It has a wide variety of woodworking techniques and operations. However, the overall techniques used range from good, to absurd, to dangerous. The problem is, a beginner may not be able to know the difference between a good technique and a dangerous or poor technique. Also, some of the projects are good, and some are poor. The main problem with this book is lack of consistency. The positive is that there is good stuff in it and a wide breadth of subject matter.

This is a MUST HAVE book for the Novice, September 19, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Portland, Oregon United States
I have purchased or checked out from the Library probably 30 books on woodworking in the last 6 months. This one I'd rate as the Very Best, of the none specialized books on woodworking. You simply must get this book, especially if you are just getting started into woodworking. As far as I am concerned, this book is a bargain.

A great woodworking reference and project book!, May 11, 2002
Reviewer: James Knapp from Minneapolis, MN
What a terrific book! This combines a great overview of woodworking basics with a huge section of great projects that will keep me busy for a long time! I like the way the projects are organized: Outdoor, Home Furnishings, Home Accessories and Shop. The four-color photography is superb and the exploded diagrams are coupled with great step-by-step color photos. This book lives up to the word, "complete".

Recommended reference for the do-it-yourself hobbyist., March 22, 2002
Reviewer: Midwest Book Review from Oregon, WI USA
The Complete Book of Woodworking: Step-by-Step Guide to Essential Woodworking Skills, Techniques, Tools and Tips is a superbly presented, comprehensive, and practical reference packed with just about everything a basic or advanced woodworker needs to know about squaring and cutting stock, making joints, assembly, applying finishes, projects for home and outdoors and much, much more. Every page is filled with color photographs to clearly illustrate each step of the art and craft of woodworking, and over 40 excellent and useful projects are narrated in explicit detail for woodworkers of all skill levels. The Complete Book of Woodworking guides every step with a thorough explanation of technique, and is a highly recommended reference for school and community library, as well as do-it-yourself hobbyist woodworking reference collections.
