Love it! Informative and practical - back to back!!
on 30 December 2009
I bought this book in preparation for a furniture making course and by the time I got to page twelve I had learnt at least three new things about wood, tools and about working wood. You will also find really useful advice to do with jig making - brilliant circular saw jig for cutting large sheets - and ways of jointing and thicknessing wood to overcome cupping and twisting of timber. One of the BEST things Andy says in this book is "There is really no right or wrong way of making furniture...." - in the sense that you can take all the advice available but you really need to build some and learn from it. A really well written, practical and accessible text for everyone interested in furniture making and best of all: written by a down to earth guy! I will use it for years to come *****
