Re: Looking for a book review
- A quick question,........
What did you hope to learn about the book when you asked for
a 'review' ? Noticeing Master William's reply and others, since
your question,.....I may have mis-understood what you wanted to know
In order to give you a better 'review' I'd have to go retrieve it
from my shop and that's a hike through the woods.
It's been a busy last 4 or 5 years for us,...trying to rescue what
we've been able to rescue from our old house (where the roof gave)
and get a new home built,...so I confess,....my woodcarving and
research time has had to take a back seat to other priorities,...i.e
survival and rescue.
(But I saved most of my woodworking books (not all,...and water got
into the huge bin my 100 Plus Viking books were stored,...and I lost
about half of those,....most of my best woodworking books were saved
and dry,....includeing the Earwood book,........the last several
years have proved both trying and interesting....)
