I am in the process of learning how to woodwork. I've looked at all the woodworking newbie books that are common in the chain bookstores as well as some older ones in a few used bookstores. The genre template is consistent and has two major parts: first there is a breakdown of tools and techniques basic to woodworking, then there are step-by-step guides to projects that utilize those tools and techniques.

If you are looking for this sort of book, Woodwork is far and away the best I have found. Here are three reasons:

1: The furniture that it shows you how to make actually looks nice. I had not purchased other books of this sort because I couldn't find the motivation to build the ugly furniture they promised to guide me through step by hideous step. I like furniture styles like Shaker, Arts and Crafts, anything by Thomas Moser, etc. ... and I really like the options presented in this book.

2: It's photographic. Where other books have line drawings this book has quite recent looking color photos. The step-by-step guides have multiple pictures for each step. When trying to learn this hobby on our own there are so many basic instructions that take forever to complete when there is not a picture handy of what it looks like to accomplish the task. Bottom line: lots of well-chosen pictures.

3: The steps are broken down... REALLY broken down. For the simple, handsome tool box that the book guides its reader through, for example, "fitting the hinges to the lid" is broken down into six sub-steps. For those six steps there are a total of 8 pictures on the page. These instructions cross-reference the technique guides earlier in the book in case you feel like taking a break and reviewing the ins and outs of the dovetail joint.

I rarely write reviews but I feel so strongly about this book that I had to take the time to write this one. Woodworking has been my hobby for about the past 10 years and in that time I have purchased A LOT of woodworking books. Surprisingly I have never heard of this book before. I found it browsing the woodworking section of my local bookstore. At first I was reluctant to pick it up because a.) the all in one type woodworking books usually cover many topics but none of them very well and b.) I thought my skill level was beyond anything that I could learn from an all in one type book. Well I am happy that I didn't let my ego get the best of me and I decided to pick up this gem. There are many things that I like about this book but my favorites are: a.) It has great pictures b.) they primarily use hand tools but they also use power tools when appropriate c.) they cover almost all topics of woodworking and provide the meat of these topics so you will rarely need to go to another source for more information and d.) it's hardcover. The only bad thing I can say about this book is the authors are British and if you are American some of the terminology is different. It's really a minor point. I recommend ALL woodworkers own this book (not just beginners), although it would be the first book i would recommend to a beginner if i was asked for a recommendation. Out of all the woodworking books I have it is one of the few books I keep in my shop for quick reference (along with Tage Frid and Charles Hayward). If my house/shop was burning down and I could save only one book on woodworking this would be the one. My only regret is that I didn't find this book earlier in my hobby because it would have saved me a lot of headaches, bad joints, glue failures, cursing, etc.

I had borrowed this book from the local public library. Right away I knew it was a good one to own so I ordered it from Amazon. If you're a wood worker this is one to keep as a reference, no matter your skill level.

I am a home woodworker. I have made several bookcases, end tables and just completed our kitchen cabinets. I own many useful woodworking books but like the detailed pictures in this, one the best. This will be one of my first "go to" book for future projects. I have looked at this book in many locations and Amazon had the best price, by far!

I'm an amateur woodworker and am always looking at the wood books i can find and this has to be one of the better ones. It tells you pretty much everything in color on woodworking. If your gonna get any wood working book. Get this one.

Format: Hardcover
Woodwork is full of color pictures and is basically an encyclopedia of woodworking, it also seems to have been written and edited by someone who researched woodworking but is not actually an experienced woodworker. Some of the wood descriptions are iffy at best. For example according to the book yellow pine is very soft and very weak, but good for carving -- all wrong; while poplar is "medium density". In fact poplar and yellow pine are the same in density. Pine is poor for carving because the rings have very different densities, the darker rings are much harder than the lighter rings. The book claims maple is excellent for finishing yet it tends to splotch. Blind dovetails are chopped out the same as regular dovetails -- wrong. Yet it appears they remove the waste correctly when mortising for a hinge. I say "appears" because there isn't enough detail to actually know how they did it. I recommend books by any of the established master craftsman like Tage Frid, Sam Maloof, Paul Sellers, Roger Holmes, Bill Hylton, James Krenov, and Bob Flexner (these are just a few).
