3.0 out of 5 stars Not what you expect
The book has very little in the way of words. It's just a series of photographs of someone cutting blocks of wood. You can follow it for the first 15-20 photos, then I got totally lost. I kind of get what he is doing, but it could have been written better.

The idea's are cool, but could have been written much better.

The book has very little in the way of words. It's just a series of photographs of someone cutting blocks of wood. You can follow it for the first 15-20 photos, then I got totally lost. I kind of get what he is doing, but it could have been written better.

The idea's are cool, but could have been written much better.

Also you should note that this book assumes that you have a 14" 1.5hp bandsaw. The author says that anything smaller will not be able to cut through the thickness of wood or have enough blade tension to cut straight. Sadly for me, he then goes on to say that any bandsaw larger than 14" won't work as you will not be able to get the 1/8" blade for it, and even if you custom order one, it won't track accurately and you will have problems.

The book does come with a DVD but I didn't watch it as the book proved useless to me as I'm not buying a new bandsaw.

Most beginners will fail with this book as a guide. A good book for experienced people. I will put it aside for six months and do basic boxes , then come back to it and see how it is then
