A pleasant surprise,
This review is from: The Handplane Book: The Definitive Reference on Handplanes (Hardcover)
When I selected this book, I suspected that this was one of those coffeetable books that are full of nice pictures that you could admire, and some nonsense text in between.
I was pleasantly surprised when I read the text, and although a bit difficult to for a foreigner to understand first, there are so many technical terms that doesn't appear in a normal dictionary, it was full of explanations of how a plane was designed, how to use it and what could be done with it. Yes, so in the end, I have spent quite many nights studying this fantastic book.
