Honestly I was thrown off

The information in this book is good for the beginner. My biggest problem was in the narration. I feel as though this book needed a different narrator and the delivery would have been a lot better and enjoyable. I listened to the entire thing but it often felt taxing simply because of the narration

Awesome book - more information than I'll ever put to use but it's perfect for reference on projects where I don't feel so confident. It is a welcome addition to the library

A serious compendium of woodworking joints. One thing I especially like about this book is that they show you several different approaches to cutting the different joints and there are a lot of illustrations.

wondering


I've been wondering how for to make a lock miter joint in 2x and larger lumber. There's no bit for that (at least not that I've found). All the details you need to setup and cut this and most other joints is there. There's a clear emphasis placed on making joints by hand and on a table saw.

very handy


A relatively small, spiral bound reference book, it has proven very handy when considering joins in my own designs. It lies flat, and doen't crowd the workspace

glad to hhave this book


I am not a seasoned wood worker but I have built some furniture and made a bunch of bandsaw boxes. Having this little book is a nice reference to different joints and how they are made and work. I like it and as a quick reference works very well. Definitely covers a lot, while there isn't a whole lot of detail it is enough to get a general idea and if you work with wood and have some experience you can figure it out with what is provided.

well explained


This has to be one of the most comprehensive books on wood joinery. As a novice woodworker, the information found in this book is invaluable. Even for the more experienced, I feel that there's plenty to learn here as well. As much info as you can find online about joinery, it's really nice to have a book that covers it all

really nice


A great book for new and old woodworkers. Very good , explaination of each joint, and the proper name for each joint.. I keep it in the shop bookcase, and refer to it frequently when the need to do a joint that is not commonly used, although the book covers just about every joint very well.
It's kind of an encyclopedia of wood joints.
