Review quote

With more than 100 project plans for everything from tables to beds to built-ins, woodworker Hylton's (Router Magic) exhaustive primer, whose original, 1998 edition is now out of print, still has great value for any woodworking collection. He begins with a brief introduction to period style, then covers joinery in depth. There are no glamour shots, only clear, black and white drawings for assembly and measurements. Exploded view drawings highlight each piece's details and special features. Because of the few instructions on construction, this is not a book for beginners; rather, it is a collection of patterns with citations to additional offerings in other books and publications. For the advanced woodworker, it is a treasure trove of project ideas. Recommended for woodworking collections in any library.
