    Excellent book for woodworkers of all capabilities! Further, the book is not all for power tool users nor is it just for handtool users: it is an excellent book of tips for all! My experience and time goes back four decades and yet I found many items in this book that I have never heard of before. I also saw a few tips that I saw years ago, but have forgotten.

    Get this book as the cost is money better spent than the cost of subscribing to a magazine that rehashes scrap that already has been talked about for ever (and also paying for ads).

    This was actually bought as a gift for my father. I'm reviewing it though because he has told me a dozen and one times how incredible of a book it is. He is very into Woodworking and very talented! So far all he has done is make furniture and stuff for my mom, his kids and our church (he built a shabby chic wall out of reclaimed wood that is to die for!).

    He says that this book is a must have! It walks you through various woodworking skills (cannot give more detail as I know very little about woodworking) but the greatest advantage of this book is, the tips. He said that they are everywhere and they are things that really do create better items but also make it easier or even faster. He spends all of his free-time watching woodworking videos and reading books but he said that this book has things he has never even seen before! Even some of his friends have gone out and bought the book for themselves.

    I know he is telling the truth and not just trying to make me feel good about the present because this is the book he looks at and has in his shop with him.

    This book exceeded my expectations. I kept almost buying it and then deferred it because I feared it would be nothing more than things I could easily find on the web or things that I'd already seen in any number of other books. I was totally wrong. This is probably one of the most useful books on my shop shelf. The sheer number of useful tips is amazing, and I have found dozens and dozens of them applicable to my situation. They are neither overly simplistic nor insanely complicated. Some of them do take a significant amount of effort - but there is a wide-range. I'm very impressed. Don't hesitate to get this book.
    The only thing is it can be hard to find a great tip a second time because there are so many and no index. I'm searching the web to see if someone has published a searchable list of all the tips.
