   Joint Book Bible
A great book. It has every woodworking joint you need to know. The tape shows you different was doing them with machines and hand tools. Even when you say you should use a certain joint, it's just that you have to choose the one that is better for what task. It's a very descriptive book, with pictures on every page.
   A very good book - Make one of your first books on Joints
There are no perfect books on any subject, but there are some that come close. This is one of those books that comes with that last bit of wood. If you are new to wood working, feel safe. I like the selection of glues. Before we can apply the clamps, we must first learn how to glue the joint. Some readers may find the book too racy, Raymond said.
   joint book
Really useful resource work. You will want this in the shop or where ever you do your drafting. It's just that the spiral binding is flat on the bench, keeping its place and the saw dust doesn't stick.
   This small book is big with useful information! The step by step illustrations and helpful ...
This book is big on useful information, Witt said. The book includes step-by-step illustrations and helpful hints to help you learn each joint. I wanted to learn joinery without making a mass of projects, he said. I love the new look of the magazine.
   I really like this book for classroom use
I really like this book, Melissa. It's been extremely handy to show them a detailed picture of different types of joinery instead of me trying to draw a sktech of the joint on a piece of paper, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Like the book, I like the cover. For such a compact size there is a lot of useful information in there, he said.
   Excellent book. Well written and easy to interpret with ...
The book is very good. Easy to read and understand, Mr. D'Antonio said. I am an Intermediate level craftsman. Feel confident using some of the Joints I did not know existed.
   Necessity for all beginners as well as pros
A great book, well written and informative. Brings back memories of things I forgot. Very high quality spiral bound book.
   Decent book but more for beginners
I found the book very much for a beginner woodworker. It's not criticism, but a statement. However, the agency said, guidelines on wood grain, expansion and other issues should be considered. Whether you're new to the trade or have some experience, we can help. However, I found nothing at an intermediate or higher level in terms of ideas or reference, and there is another group of people who might value this book and that is people who enjoy making elaborate or whimsical joints in furniture. But the book also looks at variations of joining that an artist or more eccentric wood builder might enjoy.
   Well written and illustrated
The book is easy to read and the illustrations are very good. While reading this book, I noticed that not all joints are covered in the same detail. The other joints are described in the how-to sections. However, the setup is often left in the dark. The execution of a joint may tell you which cut to make, but it is not always easy to set up the machine for the cut. The book is in very convenient spiral bound format and will be easy to use in the shop, Mr. Dhaliwal said.
   Should be called The Wood Jointery Bible
The complete guide to the New Testament, The Wood Bible, should be called The Jointery Bible. I am a new wood worker who has spent the last six months searching for similar materials. This book is better than it's compact solution that I won't have to hunt for this material again. There is a generous amount of complementary information, including what joint is good for what applications, their advantages and disadvantages, and more, all available at no cost today. Get your hands on the book. This is a great deal of money for a book, especially when you consider the wealth of knowledge that comes with it.
