Hello All,

Spike Carlsen, ‘A Splintered Hisotry of Wood’, is a delight. I am only two chapters into the book, but I became so excited about the stories, I had to write the review. I have decided to write the review in parts, because, well, I can.

If you have a mild interest in wood or woodworking, this book will be one of the best you read all year. Or I should say, the first two chapters will be. If you love woodworking, this will send you into a state of giddiness. That isn’t even my review. It is here…

I am glad. I hope you will let me know how you like it. I haven’t finished yet, but at the half way point, it is delightful.
