This review is from: Fine Woodworking Design Book Eight: Original Furniture from the World's Finest Craftsmen (Paperback)
As with all previous Fine Woodworking Design Books the photography in Design Book 8 is of a very high standard. However compared to previous issues the range of items illustrated was limited, and the sections on musical instruments, toys, carvings, wood turnings, etc that were in previous issues are missing altogether. I would give previous issues of Design Books 5 stars each, but this one deserves no more than 3. On a happier note, the service from Amazon UK was, as ever, faultless. The book arrived on time and in perfect condition. Thank you Amazon!

2.0 out of 5 stars A great disappointment, 30 Mar 2009

This review is from: Fine Woodworking Design Book Eight: Original Furniture from the World's Finest Craftsmen (Paperback)
My 'Fine Woodworking Design Book #8' arrived today and I have to say, that for me, it's great disappointment. The format is very different from the first seven, and if I understood the introduction correctly, the book was originally published as a magazine "Fine Woodworking Furniture: 102 Contemporary Designs".

So, it contains only 102 designs, and they're all furniture, including 48 pages of tables, 36 of seating. Issue #2 contained something like 1000 examples! In #8, there are none of the wonderfully wacky sculptures, turnings, boxes and musical instruments that made the previous issues so fascinating. Oh, I've just seen two boxes!

Some of the double page spreads contain only one picture with maybe 100 words and half a page of blank paper. Yes, there's more text attached to each of the projects than in previous issues, but overall, it's a very `thin' book compared the old `uns. I think.
