This book was a revelation for me and started me down the path to higher quality work. It is such an easy read with so many Ah yes moments. When I am in a funk sometimes, I still pick it up to re-energize myself. Not a technique book, but a Zen experience. I even gave a copy of this book to my father to read, and he isn’t even a woodworker!
I have been lucky enough to sit down with JK up in Fort Bragg over a beer at his place, and spend some time in his little shop. I understand he can be a bit persnickety, but he has always been very nice to me. His advice is in no way practical for saving time, but results in outstanding quality of work.
