I got really disapointed when I received and read this book. It provides advanced techniques that a regular woodworker would never use. The parts that woodworkers use the most are vague. I'm not intereset in making violins or boats. I need techniques to bend wood, to use joints for curved surfaces, to build equipment and fixtures to bend wood and so on. This book lacks of the practical guidelines to do so.

This book covers a diverse amount of applications, from boat building, furniture building, and luthier. All of the techniques are from old timers. The articles are suggestions from professions that bend wood for a living. There is a plan for how to build your own steam chamber, plus where you can buy equipment. Granted the articles are old but the ideas still apply today. After reading this book, i have created my own steam chamber, bending platforms, clamps, and an understanding of what woods bend well and which don't. It is a collection of articles not a book written by one person, so it is not point A to point B. I keep this book nearby in my shop for quick reference and i hope you do to.

I'm a professional woodworker and like to incorporate curved aspects in my designs for cabinetry. I found this book very helpful because it covers so many different tecniques. There are many ways to skin the cat; You will find most of them here. Illustrations are typical for old Fine Woodworking articles; black and white and adequate to make the material more accessable if not a joy to behold. This book encouraged me to forge ahead into some new tecniques; What more can you ask?

revista que reúne os melhores artigos da revista fine woodworking, divulgados durante seus primeiros dez anos de publicação... para os que são profissionais ou amadores estusiasmados, é uma excelente fonte de informações sobre o assunto, bending wood, além de fornecer um apanhado quase geral sobre a história deste aspecto técnico na marcenaria ocidental...

It could have been a little more complete on how-tos. Picture are to old, the information was geared to much to it was done in years gone by.
