I originally ordered the book, Hybrid Woodworking by Marc Spagnuolo because I have been an avid reader of his website, The Wood Whisperer, for years and I wanted to support him and his efforts to educate us all about woodworking. What I found, was book that I simply could not put down. Marc’s instructional style of prose is very readable and informative. Having watched virually every video that Marc has produced on his free site, and having been a Guild memeber for a couple of years, I really didn’t expect to get much “new” information. Boy, was I wrong. The volume is chock full of ideas, explanations, tool history and comparisons that help to guide any woodworker down a path of “hybridization”. Marc really covers all the bases of tool and technique choices, design options and power/hand tool combinations very well. I would reccomend that you order a copy for your woodworking library right away.
