500workshop tips & jigs
By: Stuart Lawson

ISBN-10: 1861084234
ISBN-13: 978-1861084231

When someone promises you 500 things in one book you should use your mind and say; Naaaaaaaa…
I didn’t and regret that.
This book have some good tips, a few jigs that are useful and so on, but it never explains well and the illustrations are not well enough made to show the full story.

So sorry, I’m sad to say this book is not worth the money, but even more than I was not clever enough to figure that out.

Best thoughts,
MaFe

To give me 500 tips and jigs, the should be at least 500 pages long with plenty of illustrations…
I usually do not buy those kind of books. I get them for free from all these magazine subscriptions.

Consider it scratched off the list. Thanks for the review, Mads.

David, since the list like mine probaly are long and the budget at least shorter than the list, I think that was good. LOL.

Cranes, yes we are a lucky bunch! If I had not had LJ I would have known 1/100 of what I do now even if I had read all the books. This place where we share our views, exchange opinions and advice is priceless.

Thank you to all of you,
Mads

Mads, thanks for the tip – no point in wasting money so now we know.

Probably the same people who sell 14,000 projects on a single DVD. Mostly just stuff copied from magazines and stuff that was free on the web anyway.

Thanks for the warning.

I did buy a CD like that a long time ago, and this was pure crap also…
Now we are down from 14.000 to 500 and can probably go to 100 max before it starts to be true!
Laugh.
