    Jan 16, Thomas rated it really liked it Recommends it for: aspiring woodworkers Shelves: favorites , diy , woodworking A great book, taught me a lot. I've been doing carpentry work for as long as I can remember. Going to work sites with my dad as a tiny tot, to building big decks for pocket money in college. My experience is all power tool based and with a very practical, efficiency based approach, I reckon. Also, with more of a handyman skill level than the kinda woodworking artistry and skill a real finishing carpenter or cabinet maker would have. Not a whole lot of art or deep history in the kinda carpentry I A great book, taught me a lot. Not a whole lot of art or deep history in the kinda carpentry I've been paid for, framing walls and cookie cutter deck building mostly. So, I have a lot left to learn about woodworking but this book helped me on my way. I want to set up a general workbench for my various hobbies and I think a traditional workbench would be good for a great many jobs. Stained glass, power carving, watercolors, multicopters, general repair and maintenance work, and of course furniture making, would all easily benefit from a good solid work surface. The book did a great job of showing how a couple of traditional workbenches come together and how handy they can be. Would highly recommend it for anyone looking to get into woodworking.

Taunton , One cannot but wonder, however, whether Landis can still bear the sight of a workbench. Key is a leading turner in Great Britain, where this book was first published. The title is just a little misleading, since most of the book is a general treatise on woodturning, and one of the better ones at that.

    Key provides a good discussion of wood selection, the only decent coverage of turning natural-top bowls I have seen, and, at the end, brings the book up to its title with a good, all-too-brief treatise on form. This is a very worthwhile book at the price, and would been worth a good deal more if it had been pulled out of the usual plodding British publishing rut.

    Like so many of Sterling's books brought over from the United Kingdom, 'Woodturning' has a lot of small pictures, most of them reasonably legible but a few utterly hopeless and all of them rather pedestrian.

    With good, large photographs, a larger typeface, some imaginative layout and a discussion of American lathes as well as British ones, this could have rivaled Richard Raffan's book on turning for Taunton Press. I thought it looked familiar - beyond the Popular Science look, that is - and indeed, in the small print under the Library of Congress information, we find it was published four years ago as 'Capotosto's Woodworking Wisdom.

    Workbench Book by Scott Landis

    The evident market for toy books never ceases to astonish me. This, another book of British origin, is rather handsome and all in color. The projects are reasonably attractive and extremely simple, intended for quite small children. Pierce wants you to believe that folk art can be copied from a book, a rather curious idea. Real folk art has an ineffable quality of naivete about it.
