5.0 out of 5 stars THE joinery book for EVERY woodworker Jan. 28 2004
This book is simply amazing. It shows you any joint you could ever want to build and how to do it and it does it with full color photos and drawings. There is not a single page of fluff. Every page gets right to the point and tells you what you need to know. It is also extremely well organized, not only by being intelligently divided into sections, but also with color coding so you can find what you want with ease. In addition, there is a joint index in the back of the book that shows small pictures of every joint in the book so you can flip through it and find what you're looking for if you only know what it looks like, not what it is called. That alone is worth the money but, fortunately for us, the publisher went the extra mile and made this book with a spiral binding so it stays open, and printed it with a really thick and glossy cover so it resists wear when in use around the shop, and the interior pages are all printed on thick paper stock. It's also compact (but not too small) so it isn't bulky or in your way when tyring to use it as a reference while working. This is a true book for use around the shop and it has gone beyond what I ever expected to find in a joinery book. I can not recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't leave home without it. June 22 2004
I've read larger, thicker books on joinery but this little ring-bond edition has everything I need. Terrie knows what she's doing and how to write about it. That is something few men can handle (me included). The book has fine illustrations (thanks Ed Roberts et.al.) matched equally by concise text--Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars very informative Feb. 4 2003
By Ryan
I am just beginning this wonderful woodworking hobby and this book is exactly what I was looking for. I had no idea there were so many ways to join wood together. I'm sure this book would be invaluable to experienced woodworkers and novices alike. This book lays out the information is a way that is easy to understand with lots of drawings and pictures to help see how the joint looks before, during and after assembly. I would definetly recommend this to anyone who is just beginning or has been doing it for many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome April 26 2003
By A Customer
So many books show the woodworker bent over the project instead of the actual pieces of the project coming together. This book shows detailed, helpful pictures of each step of the many different joints. The spiral-bound format makes it ideal for the shop -- you can lay the book down and have your hands free for working. This is by far the best guide I've seen for joinery.
