Review quotes

“You’ll want one for yourself and several to give to your handy friends (or those who just want to learn). Even know-it-all woodworkers are bound to pick up a technique or two, and newcomers will be itching to power up the power tools and get to work.”

"A mentor-on-paper, offering tips and guidance that can benefit woodworkers of all skill levels."
