Nice book

This book presents some great ideas but, and it’s a big but, it is not for first time do it yourself’ers. I enjoyed the cabinet making portion of the book and wish the author had included a few more cabinet making ideas.
I will keep this book around for a long time and plan to enjoy the woodworking ideas he presented.

John Lewis
