HASH(0x8cc3d21c) out of 5 stars Fantastically written and full of useful information 13 Dec. 2013
By Brian Greenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I initially figured this book would be largely a rehash of what Marc's gone over in the various guild projects, but I bought it because I support his efforts and figured it would be a good reference. I was wrong - it was incredibly useful and packed much more information than what I've seen in the guild videos. The photos are very high quality and really reinforce the text (some techniques are very hard to describe in print, but seeing the pictures made them crystal clear). The writing is Marc's usual conversational style that is a pleasure to read. Whether you're a beginner or expert woodworker, you'll definitely get something out of this book - it even contains overviews of a few of the guild projects and how Marc incorporated the techniques described in the book. This is well worth your money.

And if you've never heard of Marc before, be sure to head over to [...] to check him out. Watch a few of the free videos. If the quality over there doesn't convince you to buy this book, nothing will.

HASH(0x8cd86498) out of 5 stars A good read and a good reference. WELL DONE! 13 Dec. 2013
By Steven Jaynes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Marc is a gifted woodworker and just as important, a gifted communicator.

Woodworkers of all levels will find nuggets of wisdom and money saving suggestions in Marc's new book. If you are just starting to become a Hybrid Woodworker, employing a sensible mix of power and hand tools, Marc will pique your thinking on to how best to spend your budget. He could save you THOUSANDS of dollars by having you think through the purchases in the perspective of the Hybrid Woodworker.

Having been an active woodworker for 20 years more than Marc has been alive, I can say he still manages to get me thinking out of the box and approaching my woodworking from a new perspective. Woodworking is a hobby, advocation, and vocation that has new surprises daily since our medium is from nature and never the same exact way twice. This book takes on that perspective and proposes some interesting and alternate solutions.

I've finished it cover to cover and will return to it for references.

Great job Marc. Congratulations!

HASH(0x8cd8509c) out of 5 stars A must-have for those getting into woodworking 13 Dec. 2013
By Robert H. Sweeney, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Wood Whisperer takes to print, and brings all the clarity and thoroughness shown in his on-line videos in a book format. A very thorough explanation of how the modern woodworker can combine power and hand tools to produce high quality woodworking projects. Lots of great pictures, along with Marc's clever writing, are the perfect starting point for anyone getting into woodworking or trying to further their skill set. Even an experienced woodworker will pick up useful knowledge from this well-written tome.

Marc provides a list of the "must-haves" for beginners (read the book to find out), but this book should be included on that list. Highly recommended for woodworkers and those looking to buy gifts for woodworkers.

HASH(0x8cc3c3f0) out of 5 stars Finally... 15 Dec. 2013
By John C. Brown MD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A book by woodworkers for woodworkers with a combination of techniques both satisfying and efficient approach to working with wood. Marc does not waste 50 pages on band saw blades etc - there is an assumption here that you have some knowledge, not a lot but enough not to make you a bare bones beginning woodworker. Adding the hand tool component is like fine tuning an instrument and tweaking those last components, joints, and fittings so things come together that even you the builder is satisfied. And you mother in law after turning over the project several times is satisfied to. So there mother in law I am good for something!!

HASH(0x8cc7af6c) out of 5 stars A MUST for your woodworking library 13 Dec. 2013
By Billy@PoudreValleyCraftsman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Congratulations to Marc Spagnuolo AKA The Wood Whisperer. As a hobbyist woodworker who has been in the craft three years now I wish I had this book from my begining. I believe Marc's new book is essential to every budding woodworker. Marc walks the reader through the necessary steps of becoming a better more efficient woodworker. The books starts with the essentials of what goes into a good power tool workshop and what hand tools are a must for anyone who wants to put out quality craftsmanship. His writing style is fantastic, he's just a guy who is sharing his experience and he doesn't try to force you down any particular path. He clearly explains what tools are necessary in the shop and which ones should be considered later down the road. He also gives you guidance on how to properly use and maintain your tools. Marc takes you through steps of how to achieve professional quality results in milling, cutting, and joinery as well. He clearly explains each tool in detail and why or why not they may be necessary in your work. I would purchase this book for anyone I knew that was entering the craft long before I ever suggested to them what tools to purchase first for their shop. This book is not just for beginners either, it's full of great information for woodworkers of all levels of experience. Once you open this book you can't put it down until you've finished it, and once you e finished it you will continue to pick it up for reference. Awesome!
