About the Author

Fine Woodworking was launched in 1975 in response to the lack of quality information on the craft. With a circulation of 287,000, it is now the premiere source of how-to information for woodworkers of all skill levels that are seriously interested in woodworking techniques, tools, projects, finishing and design inspiration.

Fine Woodworking magazine has been publishing the best woodworking information for woodworkers since 1975.

Clear, well thought out presentation of some interesting projects. The diagrams are well drawn. The projects are challenging to beginners and not run-of-the-mill to experts. Highly recommend this book for anyone interested in fine woodworking.

Excellent for the experienced woodworker or anyone looking for a challenge but you better have a well equiped workshop. Excellent detailed plans and instructions for each project.

This book contains no less than 35 projects for the advanced woodworker. The reason I say, “advanced,” is that these projects require a more than basic understanding of woodworking, and require the sort of tools that the beginner is unlikely to have (e.g. scroll saw, lathe, etc.) The book is filled with color pictures, and excellent diagrams. However, what is missing is any sort of a list of materials, tools, cuttings, etc. Also, while the text is quite informative, it is not organized in a clear step-by-step format.

The projects are quite interesting, and produce beautiful results (I made the Norwegian Bentwood Box from page 36). Therefore, I would say that this is a very good book for the woodworker who is experienced in making things, but probably too complicated for woodworkers of more modest experience.
