Product Description

From Library Journal

Columns featuring reader-submitted tips are one of the most popular sections of any do-it-yourself magazine. These titles feature hundreds of such tricks of the trade that originally appeared in Fine Woodworking magazine over the last 25 years. Nearly every aspect of woodworking is covered: shop-made fixtures, tool modifications, new uses of common materials, and means of solving seemingly insurmountable problems. These tips have stood the test of time and represent some of the best advice available if a tip wasn't that good, some wise guy would have submitted something better. These outstanding titles should be part of every public library collection; a slip-cased four-volume set is available.

good stuff, but dated and often covered material Jan. 14 2009

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has interesting and good ideas, and is well written. But, if you are a regular reader of FWW or PWW, etc., there's not much new here. It doesn't have the appeal of a compendium of articles in book form (which I like), because it is rather a potpourri.

Not bad, just not much for those who've been regular readers for years.

This is the third Jim Richey "Methods of Work" book I have purchased. I have "Router Methods", "Table Saw Methods", and this one "Workshop Methods". I just wish I had known about them sooner. Each one is better than the next. I am not a professional, but I have always loved to do home improvement projects, repairs, etc. My father had a shop in the basement. once I retired and had more time I set up a small shop in my basement. These books are a gold mine. Jim Richey is an engineer, and his drawings are right on. I have made a number of the jigs and fixtures he shows and put them to good use solving problems on various projects. My favorite was out of Router Methods. A cool jig to cope molding rather than miter using a router. I built it, and used it to produce near perfect coped joints, and save time to boot. Great idea. There are many. I suggest before starting any project, look at the appropriate Jim Richey book. You may be surprised to find a little bit better way of tackling your project. These have become very useful tools. They are so good, I read them for fun and enjoyment, and enjoy building up an arsenal of tricks for future reference.

The book contains a great variety of mostly useful tips and tricks for the wood workshop. Not all of them may help you, but it is a worthwhile collection and I have implemented several suggestions.
