KIRKUS REVIEW

Good carpentry books are always in demand, and here is an interesting approach to carpentry. The author, in attempting to escape from blueprints, offers instead a system in which no dimensions are given and the measurements are made with objects. The basic principles of joining, bracing and so on are discussed in four ""construction charts"" with plenty of careful diagrams, and bright ideas for projects. Unorthodox but stimulating. Recommended with adult supervision.
