I received this book as a Christmas present. I find the information contained within extremely helpful. It gives a breakdown on most tools available and their uses. It explains the proper techniques for working with woods, the stains available, the varying quality of the material, as well as how some woods will respond to tools and stains. I could not pick a better one volume resource.
It is very well written and has easy to understand advice that is current. Current as in pertinant to tools and techniques being used today, not in 1998, or even 2001
It explains various terms you come across when reading tool litrature, for example 'snipe', and how to prevent it.
There is a great deal more to say about this book, all positive, but then I would have rewritten it myself, so I'll stop here.
Suffice to say, it's a really great book for novices, and probably a pretty good referance for veteran woodworkers.
I don't usually read this type of book cover-to-cover, but I did this one. (Twice actually...then I had to return it, so then I bought one here!)
This will be a good investment and one which you will use over and over.
By the way, I don't see anywhere that Black & Decker has, or had anything to do with this book, which is, in my opinion, a good thing because a book like this should not be about advertising....but maybe I have a pre B&D copy?
