About the Author

Joshua Salesin has produced a variety of turned, carved and decorative wood vessels for many years. A particular focus of his work is the uncommon craft of ornamental turning. His interest in vacuum kiln drying originated from a desire to create fine hand-cut threaded boxes, which require tolerances that leave little room for wood movement.

I have been researching how to build a vacuum kiln for about a year and there is a lot of very technical info out there. Too much for a simple wood working guy looking to build a simple vacuum kiln with out spending a fortune! Joshua's clear and easy to understand book made the process of designing and building my own kiln, customized to the exact size and specific needs I have, a breeze. I would highly recommend this book to anyone whether you wanted to build your own kiln or just wanted a better understanding of how the process works and if it's the right solution for your needs. He also provides a detailed list of all the parts needed to create your own kiln and most importantly the resources of where to buy them along with links to useful websites with additional info. He was even nice enough to answer a few other questions I had via email!
I would have to say this is one of the best purchases I have made in a long time and the extensive experience Joshua brings to this subject is invaluable. A clear winner and an indispensable addition to any wood worker's library.

I may never vacuum kiln wood, but I needed to know as much about it as possible. This book provided everything I wanted to know, worth the buy and the read.

I was expecting more, this was basic info that can be found already on the internet. Well written though and a good read for anyone needing basic knowledge.
